Presentation: Mid-Year Labor and Employment Law Update
Why save our entire 2021 legal update for the fall? Let’s get started early! With the Oregon legislature actively considering some game-changing new laws--and with constant changes coming from the federal government--it’s time for a mid-year update. Current Oregon and federal legal and legislative updates, as well as key court decisions since our last HRACO update (in October 2020) will be reviewed.
HRACO will still offer a full 2021 legal round up in the fall. For now, join this session to make sure you’re in compliance and up-to-date on the latest legal changes and how they impact HR!
