Finally, spring has arrived. But for many of our clients and friends in the financial services industry, an array of HR issues seems to be blooming along with the flowers.

There are the perennially thorny issues, including:

  • Wage and Hour
    • Update on FLSA exemptions
    • Fluctuating workweek rules (new insight from the NYSDOL)
    • The growing pitfalls of "Blackberry time"
    • Compliance with the new NYSDOL guidelines on the Wage Theft Protection Act
  • Trade Secrets, Customer Relationships and Business Protection
    • Recent developments on noncompete agreements and restrictive covenants
    • Update on "garden" leaves
    • Liquidated damages, injunctive relief and other remedies
    • Developing effective personnel policies for the digital workplace

There also is a budding and potentially dramatic development concerning:

  • Class Action Arbitration
    • Analysis and guidance concerning the recent Supreme Court ruling on arbitration agreements, which may offer a route to avoiding employment class actions

And, then there is the employee benefits arena, where the continued ongoing guidance surrounding such areas as executive compensation and 401(k) plans is becoming all the more complex:

  • Compensation and Benefits
    • Proposed rules affecting incentive-based compensation arrangements at covered financial institutions under Dodd-Frank
    • Compensation-related disclosures under Dodd-Frank
    • Clawback policies under Dodd-Frank
    • Other developments affecting 401(k) plans

We hope that you will join us for this timely and informative briefing. We promise to avoid the weedy legalese and provide a bouquet of practical guidance!
