One of the featured presenters will be attorney W. Melvin Haas III. A partner with the Constangy, Brooks, Smith, and Prophete Law Firm, Haas will talk about what changes projected for the human resources field.
"He will be focusing on changes coming from the Trump administration,” McCurdy told HR Daily Wire on April 23, noting new appointees to the National Labor Relations Board. “The appointees are more conservative in nature … It's more of a legal opinion of what may be coming.”
Other attorneys, McCurdy said, will talk about issues like harassment and discrimination. Some of the conference will focus on the role of social media and, as McCurdy described, why it's essential to have a proactive social media strategy
McCurdy said in there will also be a forum on handling health benefits and 401(k) employee contribution plans, and other roundtables to brainstorm how to move toward best practices and away from some of the pitfalls that HR professionals can encounter in their field.
McCurdy said the conference will finish up with a segment on ERISA compliance, with plenty of time for questions from those attending.
