With about a year and a half into the Trump administration, is anything getting clearer regarding the regulatory impact to the staffing industry?  How can procurement prepare and adapt nimbly to the uncertain and changing regulatory landscape? This session will help you understand how leading Contingent Staffing practitioners are dealing with these challenges so you can develop a roadmap in these uncertain times.  Audience Q&A to follow. Topics include:

  • In absence of clear guidance what action should we take now
  • Expected labor shortages
  • Immigration Law – what changes should we expect?
  • Impacts to the Affordable Care Act

10:10 am - 10:30 am Morning Networking Break

10:30 am - 11:10 am Interactive Case Study: Risk Management and Conflict Resolution in a #MeToo World

Remember when Trump’s Twitter account was taken down? It was by a contract employee at Twitter, who, in his own words, “didn’t do anything which I wasn’t authorized to do”.

When permanent workers are involved in such incidents and other workplace conflicts there tends to be a clear process for investigation and disciplinary action. However, when temporary workers are thrown into the mix, the process can be ambiguous and unclear. Delve into this tricky topic and learn how to mitigate ‘contractor risk’ in your own organization.  Key areas of discussion will include how to:

  • Develop and enforce contractor policies and procedures.
  • Address legal related issues surrounding sexual harassment and other inappropriate activity in the workforce.
  • Monitor contractor risk/activity on an ongoing basis

Two Rounds, 30 Minutes Each (Pick two):

These interactive roundtable sessions take a deep dive into the specific areas you came to learn about. Sit and learn in an intimate format from the speakers who have had an impact on their company and industry. Take control of your own event experience and don’t be shy! Ask questions (or answer them!) alongside other conference attendees who are dealing with the same challenges as you network with industry peers with very similar challenges, interests and responsibilities.
