24. Keeping Employment Law ‘Above Bar’

May 29, 2019

We keep it candid with employment law professionals Rich Meneghello and Alex Wheatley of Fisher Phillips as we discuss recent must-know developments for employers. Hear a national check-in on Trump's administration and about the new version of the overtime rule under U.S. Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta. Take note on why you should be prepared with two years of data for the renewed Equal Employment demographic form, EEO1. We also examine off-duty consumption issues, your ability to enforce, and what the recent Oregon Supreme Court ruling surrounding the social host statute means for all employers and those who serve alcohol.

Guests: Rich Meneghello, Partner, and Alex Wheatley, Associate, Fisher Phillips
