Emerging Issues in Employment Practices Liability

Tuesday, October 18, 2016
8:30 to 11:30 AM

NCMIC/Professional Solutions Building
14001 University Avenue, Clive, IA 50325

On Dec. 1, 2016, the Department of Labor is implementing changes that affect exempt and non-exempt employees. Additional changes will take effect over the next three years. Our seminar will help you understand the changes and how they impact your institution.

We’ll also address other employment issues such as:

  • Disability accommodation
  • Joint employee rules
  • Social media
  • Employee handbooks
  • Exemption thresholds
  • Rights of LGBT employees


Patrick Smith represents schools and colleges in claims alleging student civil rights violations, discrimination in education, harassment, and bullying. Patrick’s municipal practice includes, in addition to employment related issues, open meetings and open records compliance and litigation. He also handles cases involving contract disputes and insurance claims practices.

Patrick is an experienced litigator and trial lawyer. He regularly appears in state and federal trial courts throughout Iowa, as well as before the Iowa Supreme Court, Iowa Court of Appeals, and United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Although a frequent litigator, one of Patrick’s goals is to help his clients avoid litigation. To that end, his practice includes consulting with employers on legal compliance, HR audits, drafting employment policies and handbooks, management training, and internal investigations.

There is no charge to our invited guests. Simply use the code BUSINESS when registering.
