In 2017, worker division threatens the success of a financial organization. From worker discontent to a newfound taste for lawsuits, every financial organization must focus on reconciliation!

2016 Legal Workplace Changes: While TV covered politics, identity rights and fights, and government regulations, few paid attention to the real changes of workplace law. Workplace law grew in 2016.  As Trump enters the Presidency and courts enjoin the “Ban” and “Overtime”, new workplace laws continue to unfold. 

The workplace division, the overlooked changes of law, and the emergence of a new Plaintiff’s bar should encourage every financial entity to understand workplace division and reconciliation.

The Division:

  • the Women’s March and the Trump rallies,
  • the “wall”, the 9th Circuit Injunction, and Trump’s response,
  • the Overtime Regulations and the 5th Circuit Injunction,
  • the new concept of joint employer and the rejection of Hardy’s CEO to head the DOL,
  • the upcoming EEO1/compensation reports and the influence of Ivanka Trump,
  • the new EEOC harassment training guide and the meaning of offensive conduct,
  • the creation of a new Democratic base and the erosion of the African-American block,
  • the 2nd Amendment rights and growing fear of violence,
  • the country’s ongoing debate over the legal meaning of gender,
  • and …

Financial Workplace Regulations:

  • Incentive Compensation
  • Cyber Security (The role of human error)
  • Privacy (What is privacy? Whose privacy?)
  • Retaliation (OSHA Guide)
  • Whistleblowing (The Real Threat)
  • Responsibility for Third Party Conduct
  • and …

Community banks can succeed in 2017 if the workplace can be reconciled. How?

Join HR, compliance, and other bank officials in discussing the laws and regulations that impact division and reconciliation within the workplace.
