The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2020, and enforcement actions will begin on July 1, 2020. The CCPA has broad application and includes a private right of action as well as the possibility of a class action. Attorneys from Ogletree Deakins’ Data Privacy Practice Group are presenting a series of webinars to prepare employers doing business in California for this complex law. Join these sessions for insights and practical tips applicable to data privacy programs in California, as well as multistate and global programs.

Lawmakers in Maine closed out the 2019 legislative session with a flurry of activity, and Governor Janet Mills signed into law many significant measures affecting employers. For example, Maine became the first state to mandate that private employers provide paid leave (not just sick leave) for any reason. Join attorneys from our Portland, Maine, office for an update on the new laws and insight into other expected changes, such as the legalization of recreational marijuana and expanded employee privacy protections.

This sense of fear is what many employers feel when navigating what some call “the Bermuda Triangle of leave laws,” which exists in the perilous space between workers’ compensation laws, the FMLA, and the ADA. This session will focus on the interplay between the various laws dealing with employee leaves and provide legal and practical guidance on how to steer clear of stinging jellyfish in the form of the DOL, the EEOC, and state and local administrative investigative agencies looking to make examples of employers that fail to comply.
We begin 2019 as we did 2018: optimistic that the current National Labor Relations Board will soon start to moderate the previous Board’s rules and decisions, but still concerned about unions seeking to exploit those favorable rules by engaging in aggressive organizing and collective bargaining.
