Presentation Description:

2018 Legal Update: The Year of Less, Equal & More!

In this one-hour session Jodi Slavik, Employment Attorney and Strategic Services Director, Vigilant will provide a comprehensive review of employment law developments in 2018, including court decisions, agency rulemaking, state laws, and relevant local ordinances. The class is designed for business owners, HR professionals, payroll and benefits experts, attorneys, and other consultants.

2018 has already proven itself to be the year of demanding less, equal, and more: Less groping! Equal pay! More leave! Cries of harassment and unfair pay are being heard and accepted by a wider audience, and the Washington legislature is stepping in to do what the federal government won’t. In her high-energy, straight-talk style, Jodi will arm you with the knowledge you need to:

  • Understand the unanswered questions in Paid Family Leave rulemaking and how to prepare for 2020 leave
  • Ask the right questions about Washington Paid Family Leave and overtime exemption rules
  • Revise your harassment policy, practices, and training given #MeToo awareness and liability
  • Comply with new state equal pay and religious discrimination laws
  • Create multiple lines of attack to find and resolve pay disparity
  • Implement take-aways from case law, regulations, and guidance letters on wages, disability, discrimination, and accommodation

Speaker Bio:

Jodi proudly provides counsel to Washington State businesses on employment issues, including training of HR professionals, managers, supervisors, and employees on a range of liability and leadership issues. As Vigilant’s Strategic Services Director, Jodi is also responsible for stability and growth of major accounts in Washington and Idaho, as well as ensuring unparalleled service for Vigilant member companies.

Support the SHRM Foundation & Northwest Harvest

From now through December 11, 2018, we are asking HR professionals to participate in a food donation drive to benefit Northwest Harvest. Anyone participating in the November Chapter Meeting or the December Chapter Meeting is invited to make a monetary donation or a food donation. We thank you all for your generosity. Suggested food donations include cans—especially those low in salt, sugar, and saturated fats—of fruits, vegetables, and stews, peanut butter, shelf-stable milk, whole grain pasta, baby food and formulas, and infant cereal. NW Harvest also accepts donations of baby diapers. Learn more at the about donations.

Waiting List:

If the registration deadline has passed, you are welcome to arrive at the venue at 11:00 a.m. and enter your name on the waiting list. We will accommodate walk-ins whenever space is available. The onsite registration fee is $55 for LWHRA members and $70 for non-members. Note that only the regular meal is available to walk-ins, and the fee must be paid on site.

Refund Policy:

LWHRA sets its registration fees as low as possible in order to make educational opportunities widely available. We will gladly issue refunds for event registrations that are canceled before the registration deadline. Because we need to make venue arrangements and order refreshments in advance, we are unable to refund registration fees after the deadline. No-shows who have registered but not paid in advance will be billed. Substitutions are always welcome. Please request your substitute to inform the registration desk that they are attending in your place.
