94th Annual Conference

Full-day seminar will tackle key HR issues

This year’s LOC Conference will feature a one-day Human Resources Seminar on Thursday, September 26, focusing on educating and empowering local government officials who work in management positions, deal with employment and labor laws, or assist in their organization’s human resources needs.   The seminar will provide guidance on how to address recent legislative changes impacting Oregon employers, while simultaneously giving practical advice on how to successfully maneuver seemingly complicated state and federal laws.  Sessions include:

  • Workplace Harassment & Discrimination – Understanding the New Requirements and Liabilities Imposed by SB 479 & 726;
  • Protected, Paid, & Unprecedented: The Fundamentals of Oregon’s New Paid Family Leave Act of 2019;
  • The Effect of SB 1049 on PERS Employers & Employees;
  • Janus & House Bill 2016 – Now What;
  • How to Avoid an Unfair Labor Practice – Avoiding the Landmines to Achieve the Mission; and
  • Oregon’s Pay Equity Law – Understanding its Nuances.

BullardLaw.gifThe Bullard Law Firm is generously sponsoring a “lunch and learn” session during the seminar.  Kathryn Hindman, a highly respected Oregon lawyer who specializes in wage and hour compliance, workplace harassment and discrimination, family medical leave, injured workers and the interactive process and reasonable accommodation, will present  her “10 Tips for Managing Intermittent Paid Sick, Family Medical and ADA Leave.”

Topics covered during the Human Resources Seminar are those that affect all types of municipal officials in Oregon.  Whether you are a lieutenant in a city police department, the human resources administrator for a county, or a city attorney, the sessions covered in the Human Resources Seminar will be invaluable.  The LOC is seeking the following continuing education credits for this seminar:
