HR Answers Webinar Series
Zoom Virtual 

Regular improvement opportunities are a vital aspect of organizational wellness and growth. Regardless of your role with the organization, it’s critical to understand the importance of employee development and the increasing investment and role employers will play. To remain competitive, offering your team members regular opportunities to improve their skills and advance their own professional growth can help you recruit and retain employees. In addition, they will feel supported, connected, and engaged while boosting the reputation of the organization.

In our time together we will discuss:

  • What workplace skills are in demand;
  • The need for addressing our skills gap with Reskilling, Upskilling, Cross-skilling, Newskilling;
  • What you are doing now for continuous learning and what’s working;
  • Share ideas and tips for success, including micro-learning, individualized development plans and more

OSHA Walkaround Rule

May 8, 2024  11:00 – 12:00 AM PT
IEC National Live Webinar
Virtual Zoom

On April 1, 2024, OSHA published a new inspection “walkaround” rule that purports to allow third-parties, including labor union organizers, to accompany its on-site inspections – even if there is no labor union currently representing workers. The final rule goes into effect on May 31, 2024, unless enjoined by a federal district court. Meanwhile, contractors should understand the new rule and what options they have for how to address on-site inspections when OSHA may try to bring a third-party, such as a labor organizer or community activist. Although OSHA refers to the new rule as a “clarification,” it is a dramatic departure from the plain language of the OSH Act and decades of precedent on access to job sites. Phillip Russell, OSHA attorney with Ogletree Deakins, will discuss the new rule and options for contractors to consider, including possibly denying access to anyone other than OSHA personnel. This is a limited capacity webinar for IEC members only.

Complying with New Leave Legislation: Best Practices for Oregon Employers

May 29, 2024 10:00 – 11:00 AM PT
Barran Liebman Series
Virtual Zoom

Oregon employers are responsible for ensuring that their leave tracking systems properly account for an employee’s leave taken under each (or any combination) of potentially applicable laws, including Paid Leave Oregon, the Oregon Family Leave Act (OFLA), or the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). However, each of these three laws differ in multiple respects, which often complicates the coordination of leave. Adding to the complexity, effective July 1, recent legislation will impact current practices relating to concurrency, qualifying reasons for leave, and potential protected leave entitlements. To assist employers in navigating these upcoming changes, Stacie Damazo will lead employers in a discussion of leave administration best practices.

Key learning objectives will include the following:

  • Understanding SB 1515A and the changes to qualifying reasons for leave under OFLA and Paid Leave Oregon

  • Understanding the amended OFLA regulations (including potential developments on the horizon)

  • Preparing leave administration and tracking systems for upcoming changes

  • Evaluating whether to update leave policies in light of recent and upcoming changes
