    Join us for our February Membership Meeting - Employment Law in Transition (Legal Update) with Randy Sutton

    Although it can be said that employment law is constantly changing, 2017 was a particularly big year. The Oregon Legislature enacted several significant new laws with broad impact. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) appears to be moving in a new more employer-friendly direction. Immigration issues remain at the forefront, with recent widespread ICE raids. The tax reform law even includes new impacts on HR.  Most significant of all, sexual harassment issues dominated the news, with notable impacts at the highest levels. 

    Randall Sutton, a Partner with the Saalfeld Griggs law firm in Salem Oregon, returns to our Chapter to discuss these developing issues.  Topics include:

    • Significant Oregon Developments for 2018
      • Pay Equity
      • Manufacturing Overtime & Maximum Hours
      • Predictive Scheduling
      • Forecast for 2018 Session
    • Shifting NLRB Scrutiny over Employer Work Rules
    • New Tax Reform Limitations & Credits
    • Impact of Stepped Up Immigration Enforcement
    • Sexual Harassment & #MeToo - Recommended Policies and Practices to Minimize Liability
