Event Detail

Labor & Employment Executive Breakfast

Alston & Bird hosted this seminar from our Atlanta office. Alston & Bird attorneys Alex Barnett, Ashley Brightwell and Dan Taylor presented the following topics:

Wellness Programs – Update on EEOC and ACA Issues

Wellness programs can be a significant benefit to employees and employers, but compliance burdens and risk of exposure under various discrimination and privacy laws can make them difficult to implement and maintain. We will discuss the EEOC’s proposed wellness program guidelines in light of recent cases, ACA and ADA compliance issues and recommendations for addressing practical risk management and implementation concerns.


Ramping Up for Criminal Prosecutions of Worker Safety Violations

On the heels of the Department of Justice’s September 9, 2015, memo on individual accountability for corporate wrongdoing (“Yates I”), on December 17, 2015, the Department of Justice issued a directive to U.S. Attorneys regarding a renewed emphasis on criminal prosecutions for worker safety violations (“Yates II”). We will examine recent developments in this area and what the DOJ’s focus on criminal sanctions means to employers in all industries.


This seminar was approved for one CLE hour by the State Bar of Georgia.
