Notes from the Chair & Executive Editor -

Welcome to the third-quarter edition of SuperVision Today, Spilman Thomas & Battle's labor and employment e-newsletter. We are very excited about the recently launched Spilman SuperVision app for iOS devices. This app, which is available for free download in the Apple App Store, is designed to help you with employment law questions we frequently encounter. The app will allow you to explore common employment law situations, such as those relating to overtime, final wage payment and social media. By following the app's simple decision tree mechanism, you can gain a better understanding of these particular issues, what your options are, and when to seek the counsel of a knowledgeable legal advisor. Please take a moment to download the app (or walk through the app's decision tree on our website) and let us know what other labor and employment law topics you would like us to tackle next.

For our friends in Virginia and North Carolina (and any who missed our Charleston event), our next SuperVision labor and employment law symposium is Thursday, September 26 in Roanoke, Virginia. SuperVision presentations will cover such topics as the Affordable Care Act, social media, dealing with disability leave and other hot topics. We are particularly thrilled that National Labor Relations Board Member Harry I. Johnson, III will be delivering our lunchtime keynote presentation. Attendance is expected to be high, so please reserve your spot now.

In this edition of SuperVision Today, Alyesha Dotson addresses the growing acceptance of class action waivers by courts and the value of incorporating a waiver into job applications, contracts and offer letters. Erin Jones Adams examines some of the latest issues concerning the Affordable Care Act. Rick Wallace and Lindsay Griffin Smith discuss some important dos and don'ts for annual performance reviews, and Scott Adams highlights a number of items that should be on every HIPAA compliance checklist.
