BLR’s annual employment law conference, the National Employment Law Update (NELU), is undergoing the most significant expansion and enhancement since its debut in 2007.
For 16 years, Advanced Employment Issues Symposium (AEIS) has assembled Human Resources professionals, employment law attorneys, and experts on workforce management for 2 days of intensive discussion of critical compliance topics. Participants learn about the latest laws, regulations, and court decisions affecting employers and how to amend workplace policies and procedures to meet changing requirements.
Now, BLR’s NELU conference is joining forces with AEIS to create the ultimate HR professional learning experience. This combined event will take place under the AEIS banner.
“It’s really about making a better event for attendees.” That’s what Bob Brady (BLR’s founder) said when I asked him how he would explain the logic behind the change, “We’re combining the most popular parts of these two programs into a single, best-in-class event. And attendees get a choice of two locations, Las Vegas or Nashville.”
The new event’s 4-track program targets employment law enforcement, FMLA and ADA practices, leveraging social media to meet HR objectives, and creating a workplace that retains top performers.
Attendees get updates, insights and compliance strategies that help them remain a crucial part of the organizational decision-making process. AEIS also includes sessions where participants share ideas, techniques, and war stories with colleagues, building relationships and professional strengths.
The majority of the 32 experts on the AEIS faculty are attorneys with the Employers Counsel Network, a nationwide affiliation of law firms with expertise in employment law. They bring the latest compliance solutions, experience in helping employers meet complex requirements, and guidance for implementing workplace policies that pass legal muster.
