‘Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid!’ Knowledge & Networking Lunch Provides Update on Independent Contractors, Overtime and More
OXNARD, CA – Avoid the catastrophic consequences of ignorance in a rapidly changing field of law as attorneys Brian Koegle and David Poole of Poole, Shaffery & Koegle, LLP present the “Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid!” Employment Law Update hosted by the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Dec. 12. Held at the Residence Inn by Marriott/River Ridge, this Knowledge and Networking Lunch provides insight on legal matters affecting Oxnard businesses and professionals.
“If you’re not updating your employee handbook annually, it's probably not worth the paper it’s written on,” Brian Koegle explained of the fluid nature of employment law. “Every year, drastic changes to employment law go largely unnoticed by the majority of the business community — until they need us.”
The purpose of the upcoming luncheon, David Poole explained, is to help businesses understand and prepare for a new year of changes, so they can take proactive steps to protect themselves and their businesses. Without a nuanced appreciation of these laws, business professionals unknowingly could make significant and costly mistakes.
Topics to be covered during the luncheon include:
“Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to the law,” Koegle said. “Your business can’t afford to ignore California employment laws and risk catastrophic results.”
The 2019 Employment Law Update will be held Thursday, December 12 at 11:30 a.m. at the Residence Inn by Marriott/River Ridge.
