Clear as Mud: 2020 Vision in the Political Arena

The political landscape will begin to heat up heading into the 2020 election. Healthcare will continue to be a major talking point with buzzwords such as “Medicare for All”, “Universal Coverage”, and “Public Option”. These elusive terms will bombard the political discussions/presentations and complicate the options available to us as Americans. During this session, we will simplify these confusing terms in relation to Medicare, Medicaid, prescription costs, commercial coverage and the ever-changing individual coverage. We will unpack the economy health care from multiple views and the impact on you the employer, your employees, as well as their jobs in your community. Until defined, these alternatives sound reasonable, however, each have huge economic consequences, even the option of doing nothing.

This session is led by McGohan Brabender CEO, Scott McGohan

Employment Law Developments

With the most recent election of the 116th Congress, the congressional balance has tipped causing Washington to refocus more on employer related issues. Pensions, paid leaves, minimum wage, overtime exemptions, LGBT rights, pay equality, right-to-work, prevailing wage, harassment and predictable work scheduling are just some of the items Washington will address. If Washington “drops the ball,” from the States perspective, the local governments will certainly attempt to pass similar legislation. Seven additional Statehouses are Democrat controlled, and although federal agencies, such as the DOL, EEOC, and NLRB, are led with Republican appointed personnel, these agencies’ field staff are more energetic in enacting rules and enforcing their laws than ever before and they will be supported by the House oversight.

During this session, Bob Dunlevey, seasoned employment law attorney, will let you know what employers can expect from Washington and how to effectively prepare and cope with these employer related changes.

Your CFO Has a Drug Problem

The first step in addressing a drug problem is recognizing you have one. Did you know that the average cost of prescription drugs has increased 486 percent since 2007? If you think that’s painful, know that some employers are spending more on pharmacy than on overall medical spend!

Destructive Heroes

“Destructive heroes” pose a difficult challenge to employers. They get exceptional results, bringing in new business or stellar sales. On the outside, these aggressive employees are great for the bottom line. But from the inside, demanding, argumentative, self-involved egotists leave a destructive trail in the workplace. Managers and co-workers are at a loss for dealing with their unchecked impulses, and hesitant to speak out because their own numbers might pale by comparison. So what do you do — cut them loose, cut them a break, or confront them about their unacceptable behavior?  Do ultimatums work? Can this behavior be modified? Scott McGohan, CEO of McGohan Brabender, speaks from the heart on how to recognize, reform and manage a destructive hero — and how to better understand our own destructive tendencies. He knows; he once was a destructive hero. His experiences, and his turnaround, give him valuable insight into this often overlooked employee issue.
