Being able to properly classify a purchase and identify the applicable purchasing laws and policies can prevent delays and save staff time, and will limit your district’s legal exposure. Maggie will discuss the legal standard for each category of procurement, such as when to use a request for qualifications, request for proposals, or issue an invitation to bid; as well as common mistakes to avoid for each category, such as failing to require prevailing wages in your contracts when required; and provide special tips to improve your contracting process and protect your district, such as suggestions for how to minimize haggling over your district’s standard contract.

Labor Relations In The Wake Of Janus v. AFSCME

12.05.2018

Case Studies In Employee Leaves, Reasonable Accommodation, And The Interactive Process

DATE:

December 5 – 7

LOCATION:

Monterey, CA

ORGANIZED BY:

California Public Employers Labor Relations Association (CALPELRA)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

Kronick is pleased to again sponsor CALPELRA’s Annual Conference on December 3-7, 2018 in Monterey. Shareholders David Tyra and Christopher Onstott will discuss the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Janus v. AFSCME. If the Court overrules Abood v. Detroit Board of Education and holds that agency (or “fair share”) fees constitute an unconstitutional violation of First Amendment rights, the decision will portend a major change in California public labor relations. In this session you’ll learn about likely responses to the Janus decision, from further legislative responses of the type already seen (e.g., AB 119 [union access to new hires] and SB 285 [prohibiting public employers from deterring or discouraging union membership]), to the impact on collective bargaining, and to potential legal challenges to the elimination of agency fees. If you’re interested in the seismic shift in labor relations the Janus decision likely represents, you must attend this session.

DATE:

December 5 – 7

LOCATION:

Monterey, CA

ORGANIZED BY:

California Public Employers Labor Relations Association (CALPELRA)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

Kronick is pleased to again sponsor CALPELRA’s Annual Conference on December 3-7, 2018 in Monterey. Shareholder David Tyra and Associate Jennifer Weiner will discuss how to manage leaves in light of the numerous overlapping laws, how to determine appropriate and effective reasonable accommodations (including leaves) for employees who require them to perform the essential functions of their jobs, and how to conduct effective interactive process meetings with employees and their representatives … all these situations present significant challenges for employers. If you have basic knowledge of the various laws providing employees with leave rights – FMLA, CFRA, ADA, workers’ comp, etc. – then in this session you’ll learn about some of the more difficult, complex, and advanced issues arising from employee leaves and reasonable accommodation requests, with a particular emphasis on the overlapping nature of the various applicable laws, and techniques for handling those issues.
