Welcome to the June edition of ‘On the Fly’ – a short monthly news update for CRA members that will give you the lowdown on what you need to know.
The Department of Labor rolled back the expansion of the joint employer rule. Here’s why it’s good news. Before, one business could be held liable for employment and civil rights violations at another company. This would apply to businesses who hire subcontractors to do a job. It’s also important to companies that engage in franchising and could protect them from costly litigation. Read more here.
What do you do if an employee is badmouthing your establishment or a supervisor online or elsewhere? Are your policies on drug and alcohol use compliant with federal and state laws? What are the components of a proper dress code or personal hygiene policy for your employees? Should you be concerned about jokes or horseplay in your workplace? Answer all of these questions and more in a joint presentation with CRA and Todd Fredrickson, of Fisher and Phillips LLP. This FREE annual presentation is a great way to stay on top of regulatory issues that can affect your business! We will be conducting this seminar throughout the state in Denver, Breckenridge, Colorado Springs, Durango, Steamboat Springs, Boulder and Fort Collins as well. Check out the full schedule and register!
At a recent public hearing, the CRA testified in favor of the proposed rules in Denver on social marijuana consumption licenses. We participated in the working group to create recommendations for this, and our major concern was not allowing the dual consumption of marijuana and alcohol in the same establishment because of liability and public safety concerns. The CRA will continue to monitor the adoption of the proposed rules to ensure that the concerns of our members are addressed. If you have questions on this issue, don’t hesitate to contact Nick Hoover, firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-830-2972.
