2017 Labor & Employment Seminar
July 26, 2017 - July 28, 2017
The Labor & Employment Practice Group held its annual seminar July 26-28, 2017, at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, in Truckee, California.
Employers were greeted with several new or amended federal, state and/or local ordinances governing the workplace in 2017. Last fall’s election also created uncertainty about how the new Administration and Congress may alter those federal obligations and the employment landscape. Significant labor and employment legislation and regulations were enacted at the state and municipal level – multiple states approved minimum wage increases, medical and recreational use of marijuana was liberalized throughout the country, and new statewide paid sick leave measures were enacted, to name but a few. Simply keeping track of the many local law developments may be one of the most challenging compliance hurdles for multi-state and national employers.
