The DC Chamber of Commerce Employer Advocacy Program (EAP) has a follow-up FREE legal workshop planned for you on September 11, 2015 from 9 AM to 12 PM at the DC Chamber of Commerce. If you missed the last EAP seminar; you missed a lot. Our presenters reviewed the new laws impacting your ability to ask job applicants about their criminal histories. We discussed new penalties and reporting responsibilities placed on employers with respect to keeping time and attendance information. We talked about whether it’s still legal to test employees for marijuana and we talked about whether your employees and customers can bring concealed weapons in your store or office. On September 11 we’re going to be joined by the interim director of the unemployment insurance program, Gerald Smart. He’ll be sharing information every employer needs to know about the unemployment insurance program. He’ll also be taking questions from the group! Following Mr. Smart’s presentation, we’ll be doing a workshop on the new laws impacting employers in 2015. Real-life scenarios and hypotheticals will be presented to help your business manage the new laws and requirements concerning wage-hour and criminal screening provisions than now have to be part of your hiring process. We’ll also bring you up-to-speed on the new documents every single employer has to keep and maintain to prove the rate of pay for every employee. This is a seminar you don’t want to miss. Did I mention there’s free food and coffee!!?? If you are a business owner, non-profit leader, HR professional or attorney, we strongly recommend you join us! Please RSVP with firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, September 9, 2015. We hope you can attend.
