About The Event
SPECIAL 3 HOUR SESSION - Due to the popularity of this event we have reserved the additional Theatre room at McMenamins with a video feed. There will be a moderator located in the room to accommodate live questions from the audience to the Presenter, Kurt Barker. Refreshments will be served in both rooms.
Come mingle with colleagues and learn what’s new in labor and employment law! The 2019 Oregon Legislature gave employers plenty to tackle. It’s time to address the Workplace Fairness Act, new pregnancy accommodation requirements, paid family leave, and much more.
This presentation will also cover an Oregon Equal Pay Act update, other new federal laws and regulations, as well as key employment-related state, federal and US Supreme Court decisions from late 2018 through the present. Join us for a lively discussion filled with practical tips!
