Chicago partners Bruce Stickler,  Stephanie Dodge Gournis and Mark Nelson will address health reform at the 46th Annual ASHHRA Conference & Exposition on September 26. As health reform ramps up, Human Resources Executives will face greater demands on their time. Adding to this challenge, in the labor and employment arena providers will be subject to an environment of unprecedented regulatory enforcement initiatives from federal agencies. Bruce and Stephanie panel presentation entitled “Health Care HR Hot Topic Panel,” will address how HR Executives must assume a strategic role in advising leadership on these new challenges while eliminating compliance risks. The topics which will be addressed are: the role of HR Executives in health care reform, wage and hour compliance, and the opportunities, challenges and legal pitfalls of social networking.
