Please join us for an interactive and engaging conference. The conference will feature three  general session s and one breakout session. Register below and select the breakout session that best fits your preference.

General Session: Why Your Anti-Harassment Training Isn't Working, And How to Fix It
Anti-harassment policies and training have been a common feature of American workplaces for decades, yet workplace harassment remains a widespread problem. In this session, we'll discuss why your organization needs to devote additional time and resources to preventing workplace harassment, how effective training can play an important role in an anti-harassment program, and why traditional anti-harassment training doesn't work.
Breakout Sessions: 

#1: Another Tumultuous Year in the Labor World: From the Supreme Court to the Labor Boards, Changing Labor Laws Have Impacted Private, Public, and Non-Union Employers
As expected, the NLRB has not taken its foot off the gas pedal this year, and continues to issue decisions and guidance that have had dramatic impacts on private sector union and non-union workplaces. On the public-sector side, the Supreme Court issued the Janus decision, overturning precedent that had allowed unions to collect fair share fees from non-members for decades. This decision has dramatically impacted the way unions operate, and negotiate and interact with management. This session is designed for all employers - public, private, union and non-union. We will discuss the latest NLRB and public-sector labor law developments and how to address these developments in your workplace.

#2: You Need What?! Skillfully Manage ADA Accommodation Requests
Join us for an interactive session that will address how best to handle unsupported or tricky accommodation requests. 
General Session: Shhhh...Listen! Do You Hear the Sound of Changing State Law?
The beginning of 2019 has seen a number of changes to Illinois impacting employers and employees. From reimbursement policies and Governor Pritzker's executive orders to what to expect in the coming months, we've got your state law needs covered!

General Session: Mitigating Workplace Violence Through Risk Assessment
Mass violence has become such a common occurrence in our culture that it is easy to become numb to it, and to conclude that there is nothing we can do about it. But this kind of violence is not inevitable or spontaneous. In this timely presentation, Dr. Nancy Zarse, a forensic psychologist and Professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, will provide a brief introduction to risk assessment and explain what employers can do to reduce the risk that their workplace will be part of the next tragic headline.

Community Outreach Update

EventsNews By Teri

We know that we regularly reach out to you for donations - The Toy Drive, Halloween Party costumes and the Mother's Day baskets etc. are all events that we work on with you.  You may not realize what happens then.....

Well, recently on Channel 7 News, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson presented a domestic violence survivor and her 6 children toys that we had donated to the Chicago Police Department from our recent Holiday reception. The mom had also attended the Children's Halloween Party with her children in October that we organized where many of you donated costumes, food and candy.

This woman had been shot 11 times by her abuser and managed to rise above it all.  She now encourages other women to do the same if they are able.  Her children had bright smiles as they opened your toys.  It was truly a touching story.  To view the segment:

Tis the season of giving and we have done just that - we have made a difference - thank you! 

Wishing you a wonderful New Year for you and your families. 

Your friendly HR Associaton Board!
