    Employment Law Update: Key Developments from 2012 & What to Expect in 2013 Randy Sutton & David Briggs, Saalfeld Griggs PC

    In 2012, courts and regulatory agencies kept employers guessing, with new legal developments on some unexpected topics. With the reelection of President Obama and a shift in the balance of power in the Oregon Legislature, 2013 promises to be an eventful year for Oregon employers. Randy Sutton and David Briggs will look back at the legal developments from 2012 that Oregon employers should be the most concerned about, and provide a summary of what the Oregon legislature will be looking at in the 2013 Session. Specific topics will include:
    · 2013 Legislative Agenda: A review of the bills that are the most worrisome (or beneficial) in this year’s Oregon legislative session, and what the new balance of power in the legislature means for Oregon employers.
    · NLRB Takes on Non-Unionized Employers: In the past year, the National Labor Relations Board has aggressively targeted non-unionized employers. We will discuss the NLRB’s latest take on social media policies, at will employment acknowledgments, the confidentiality of internal investigations, and other issues.
    · Arbitration Agreements: Recent court cases further bolster the right to arbitrate employment disputes. Should your company require arbitration? What are the pros & cons?
    · Monitoring your Employees at Work & Home: Social media & new mobile computing technology have blurred historic boundaries between home and work. What rights do you have to monitor or regulate off-duty conduct? Can you search your employee’s smartphone or laptop? Is checking email on a Blackberry now “paid” time that you must track and pay for?
