Horrible employment headlines — and how to avoid them

Staff report

“Horrible Employment Headlines and How to Avoid Them,” an employment law update for 2015, will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, Jan. 15, in Truckee.

The California legislature has been quite active recently, according to a press release from the Sierra Human Resources Association, and has introduced several new laws, including mandatory paid sick leave, “unfair immigration-related practices,” required training on “abusive conduct/bullying,” and reporting of safety issues, arbitration agreements and disclosure requirements related to computerized data breaches, among others.

Allegra A. Jones and Lori Ocheltree, attorneys at Duane Morris in San Francisco who practice in the areas of employment law and civil litigation, will lead the presentation.

Among other things, they provide preventative advice on all aspects of the employer/employee relationship, including hiring, employment agreements, job classifications, wage and hour rules, leaves of absence, ADA compliance, workplace violence, drug and alcohol testing, background checks, and social media in the workplace.

The event is co-sponsored by the Truckee Donner and North Lake Tahoe chambers of commerce, in partnership with the SHRA.

The event takes place at the Truckee Tahoe Airport Community Room, 10356 Truckee Airport Road.

Early registration (before Jan, 10) costs $55 for chamber and SHRA members, $65 for non-members. Registration and coffee service will begin at 8 a.m.

Seating is limited and advance registration is required at http://www.sierrahra.org by clicking on the online store.

Specific questions for the attorneys can be submitted confidentially in advance to SHRA co-president Laura Moriarty at Laura@tahoetrainingpartners.com.
