Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 9, 2009 -- Employers interested in upcoming changes to employment law compliance obligations can now download a 75-minute audio briefing, at no cost, from HRhero.com entitled Employment Law Experts on Obama Labor & Enforcement Agenda. This audio file contains the recording of a recent panel discussion featuring 5 employment law attorneys, each a member of the Employers Counsel Network and an authority on the status of new and proposed workplace laws and regulations. The mp3 recording of the discussion can be downloaded at HRhero.com

"Obviously, the healthcare reform debate has captured the headlines of late, but employers are about to face a rash of new obligations," says panel moderator and San Francisco attorney Mark Schickman. "From the Employee Free Choice Act to increased enforcement of existing laws, it’s pretty safe to say there’s a new sheriff in town."

The briefing explains what employers can expect from Obama’s new appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), how fast-track union organizing campaigns will change employer strategy, how and why OSHA is being strengthened, and how, at multiple federal agencies, enforcement efforts are getting new attention.

"After the Labor Department’s Wage & Hour Division got blasted by the GAO for slow response to employee complaints, it’s bumping up its staff of investigators by 33%," says fellow panelist Robert Brame with Washington, D.C’s McGuire Woods. "Employers have to get ready for this new administration right away or face some pretty expensive consequences."

This free audio presentation provides plain-English instructions on how Human Resources management and employers must review, revise, and self-enforce multiple workplace practices and policies:

*How EFCA will emerge from Congressional negotiations
*The effect of economic conditions on unionization
*Preparing for the new enforcement agenda of U.S. Department of Labor, EEOC, and OSHA
*The ramifications of health care reform on American employers
*Innovative alternatives to layoffs

In addition to Adams and Brame, the panel consists of Mar Adams, with Jones Walker in New Orleans, Charlie Plumb with McAfee & Taft in Tulsa, and Robert Vercruisse with Detroit’s Vercruisse, Murray, & Calzone.
