advertorial KEEPING AN EYE ON EMPLOYMENT LAWS Business Breakfast Briefi ng Friday, March 13, 2020 Scranton Hilton & Conference Center 100 Adams Ave. • Scranton, PA 18503 7:30 a.m. - registration/breakfast 8:00 - 9:30 a.m. - program Presented by Joseph Sileo Human resources professionals and employment attorneys are often understandably focused on the numerous and familiar federal employment laws that regulate the workplace, such as Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Ignoring important state employment laws, however, can be a costly mistake. As an extension of a previous B3, this session will provide a more in depth review of and practical guidance regarding select state-specifi c Pennsylvania employment laws (including the Wage Payment and Collection Law (WPCL), Inspection of Employment Records Law, and Criminal Records History Information Act and discuss new and pending state employment-related legislation. This includes a compromise bill passed by the PA Senate and now before the State House that would increase the minimum wage and potential future amendments to Pennsylvania’s Minimum Wage Act and more closely align state minimum wage and overtime requirements with federal law, which if it comes to fruition will be a welcome change for employers.
