Session Details

All Stressed Out and No Place to Blow – Julie Gaver 

This dynamic session reinforces the significant role HR plays in creating a more positive work environment. Stress can have a negative impact on the morale and productivity of employees, but a conscious effort to nurture more positive attitudes and develop strategies for coping with these stresses is critical to the success of any organization!

Employment Law Update 2013 - Jay Fries, Esq.

Get an overview of recent developments in federal and Maryland employment law. Particular focus is on recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) interpretations and litigation involving the Americans with Disabilities Act, including cases dealing with medical leaves of absence and no fault attendance policies.

The session also addresses the National Labor Relations Board’s recent expansion of the definition of concerted protected activity, and its application to employer restrictions on employee use of social media, such as email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Time is provided  to answer questions.

Taking the Guess Work out of Wellness – Jeanne Sherwood

Use of the term “Wellness” just might be getting out of hand for today’s HR Professional! All too often this term is over-used and under-delivered – but not after this session!! This session takes the guess work out of the elusive “Successful Wellness Program!” We touch on proven and easy to implement initiatives with clear markers for success including ROI. We also reveal local community resources and innovative ways to incentivize the program that will not impact the budget. Prepare to walk away from this session with a clear solution to your organization’s prevention needs!

Implementation of PPACA in Maryland and the Maryland Health Connection, A Panel Discussion
Panelists: Tina Bull, Henry Smith, David Noel

Moderator: Scott Mayer

Hear from experts tied directly into Maryland’s Health Insurance Exchange, as well as experts on the topics of PPACA, ERISA and Health Insurance Law. The discussion focuses primarily on Maryland’s implementation of both an individual and SHOP exchange, and how these exchanges supplement and interact with the private, employer sponsored health insurance marketplace.

Additionally, the discussion addresses the implications of the ever changing landscape and regulations regarding PPACA, and the changing roles and responsibilities of employers and HR professionals with regards to employee benefits, in the context of being offered both inside and outside the state run Exchange. 

HR Professionals gain greater insight into their requirements under Federal law, as well as benefits options, offerings and availability within the State Exchange.
