2017 LEGISLATIVE SESSION IS OVER

Today is the final day of the 2017 Legislative Session! It has been a whirlwind ride this year. A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone that participated in our legislative committee, testified before legislators, responded to our surveys, reached out to your elected officials, and shared your opinions and ideas with us. We could not do this without your input. Look for our wrap-up report next week!

 

 

MENU LABELING IS NOT THE SAME AS THE CONSUMER ADVISORY ON MENUS

After the federal menu labeling requirements were delayed last week, the CRA has received many calls from members who thought this delay had something to do with the Consumer Advisory on menus for raw or under cooked meats. To clarify, the Consumer Advisory for raw or undercooked meats has not changed. That disclaimer must still be on any menu that contains raw or undercooked meats. If you have questions about either Menu Labeling or the Consumer Advisory, don’t hesitate to call our office!

 

 

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS - IMMIGRATION ROUNDTABLE FOR EMPLOYERS

The CRA is receiving an increased number of calls from employers who have received a visit from ICE agents or are concerned about what to do when/if they do receive a visit. We encourage you to attend the first of a series of free seminars across the state designed to give you an update on what to expect, what your rights are as an employer and how to comply with immigration laws during the hiring process. Our first seminar will take place on May 22 from 10-11:30 am here at the CRA office.  Please register and include any questions you might already have in your registration form so we can be prepared to address them at the seminar. Stay tuned for additional seminars around the state.
