EMPLOYMENT LAW ISSUES AND UPDATES

Christine V. Walters, JD, MAS, SHRM-SCP, SPHR 
Independent Consultant, FiveL Company 

Christine Walters is one of the best HR professionals in the country. She will be on hand to fill you in on new HR laws and what they mean to you and your business.

States and local jurisdictions are working at a frantic pace, enacting new laws affecting employment policies, practices and procedures. Join this fast-paced, 10,000 ft. fly-by as we review some of the latest and local trends impacting you:

• Joint Employment – what is on the horizon? when and how can a repair facility, convenience store, service station or other related business be joint employers? What difference does it make?
• Drug/Substance Use & Testing – How do you ban illegal drugs use when federal, state and local laws use different definitions? When can you test an applicant or employee? How can you test an employee and what samples are permissible? What can you test employees for? Illegal drugs? Prescribed medications? Alcohol? 
• Physical Exams – Like above, when can you test employees and for what?

 

WHAT’S NEW ON THE LEGISLATIVE FRONT?
Kirk McCauley

Director of Government Affairs, WMDA/CAR

Legislative Update - Kirk will address the new minimum wage and how this might affect apprenticeships, entry level employees, shuttle drivers, and clean up people. 
How are you paying managers and are you legal with raises in minimum wage for managers?

ARE WE LEGAL? Ask yourself… do you really know?
