The Poultry & Egg Institute 2010 Human Resources Seminar will take a close look at proposed healthcare reform and how the changes could impact employer-provided health coverage. The annual conference will be held April 26-28 at the Perdido Beach Hotel in Orange Beach, Ala. The Poultry & Egg Institute is part of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.

“The escalating cost of healthcare has compelled companies across the country to implement a wide range of health and wellness programs,” said seminar committee chairman Jonathan Allen of Fieldale Farms. “These programs will now be impacted by a possible overhaul in the nation’s healthcare system, so human resource professionals need to be prepared for changes in their company healthcare programs. This year’s seminar will include a general session on the bills Congress is evaluating for a new U.S healthcare plan, followed by a question-and-answer roundtable discussion,” he added.


A labor relations session will include discussions of contract labor use and the Employee Free Choice Act; social networking as a recruiting tool; and immigration best practices and preparing for customs enforcement.
