Winstead PC is pleased to announce the launch of a new blog, The Employer Law Resource, dedicated to the topics of labor & employment and executive compensation & benefits. The blog provides important news, updates, analyses, and strategies for business leaders and professionals who manage legal matters involving labor, employment, and benefits issues.
The Employer Law Resource serves as a business tool for officers, directors, in-house counsel, human resources leaders and other personnel management professionals who need to stay informed on complex issues impacting their workforces.
Blog topics on the labor & employment side cover a broad range of issues facing employers and professionals, such as leave-related issues under the FMLA, ADA, and state and local leave laws; restrictive covenants, trade secrets, and related business torts; all types of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation arising under local, state and federal laws; compliance issues, such as under OSHA and Department of Labor Wage and Hour regulations; navigation of investigations and inspections by government agencies, such as the EEOC and OSHA; and other best practices and considerations for employers and managers facing disputes and issues involving their workforces.
The blog’s Benefits and Compensation addresses legal issues impacting the design and administration of qualified and nonqualified retirement plans, health plans, incentive programs, stock programs, fringe benefit and health/welfare benefit programs, and non-qualified deferred and equity compensation plans, as well as strategies for maintaining compliance of these arrangements in this highly regulated area. Topics will also address service provider audits, collective bargaining agreements and provisions, surveys and benchmarking, corporate governance and risk assessments, applicable listing rules, and accounting considerations and 280G calculations.
