Presentation:   Labor and Employment Law Update

Mandatory vaccines, mask mandates, and moving targets, oh my! It’s been a pandemic pandemonium for employment law and HR. We wish it could wait until we can all be in-person, but it’s high-time for a comprehensive legal update. 

This session will cover current 2021 Oregon and Federal legal and legislative updates, as well as key employment law court decisions since our last HRACO update (in April 2021) and—time permitting—some updates and insights on remote work. Join us to make sure you’re in compliance and up-to-date on the latest legal changes and how they impact HR.

Speaker:  Kurt Barker, Karnopp Petersen LLP 

A partner at Karnopp Petersen LLP, Kurt serves as Chair of his firm’s Employment Law department. He is the current Legislative Affairs Chair of HRACO (and a past President of its board), and also serves on the boards of the Oregon Employer Council’s Central Oregon Chapter and Volunteers in Medicine. Kurt has been representing employers in all aspects of the employment relationship for 20 years, including counseling regarding terminations and medical issues, drafting handbooks and contracts, conducting antiharassment and other trainings, helping employers avoid claims, and defending them before agencies and in state and federal courts. Since 2012, peers repeatedly have selected Kurt for listing in Best Lawyers in America for his work in Management-side Employment Law and Labor and Employment Litigation.
