Opening Keynote Speaker
Alexander Passantino, Esq.
Former Acting Administrator of the US Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division
WHAT ENFORCEMENT CHANGES CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION?
Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis has vowed more aggressive enforcement of workplace laws, hiring nearly 300 new Wage and Hour Investigators in 2009, with the hiring an additional 110 investigative employees planned for this year. The Department has indicated that it intends to file more cases against employers, and to assess civil monetary penalties with increased frequency and severity. This increased enforcement is intended to "send a message" to employers. What else can employers expect from the "new sheriff in town"? Which industries will be targeted for investigations? How does the Department set its investigative priorities? What types of violations are most frequently cited? How will the Department advance its policy agenda through the use of regulations, amicus briefs, opinion letters, and enforcement actions? What other initiatives might be in store for employers?
Closing Keynote Speaker
Active Participant in Health Care Reform Debates
HEALTH CARE REFORM: 2010 AND BEYOND
With the advent of recent history making health care reform legislation, we suddenly find ourselves in a more complex and cumbersome health care market than ever before. We will examine key components of the health care reform as we attempt to predict the final outcome and the ultimate effect of pending regulation and an entire new set of rules, regulations and taxes. While health care reform measures have been touted as consumer protection and expansion of
coverage for 32 million Americans, it is becoming ever increasingly clear that the cost will be passed on to the 225 million Americans that had coverage all along. This program will attempt to deliver concise cause and effect realities of the future of American health care.
