Business Policy Series
HCAOA is partnering with Littler Mendelson, P.C. to provide a Webinar series on business best practices, compliance and policy issues that home care providers need to ensure stable growth for their businesses. The first of these will occur on Thursday, February 20.
Maintaining an Issue-Free Workplace in the Home Care Industry
The webinar will be hosted by Littler attorneys Angelo Spinola and Kurt Rose. As the home care industry continues to grow, so too do the efforts of labor organizations to unionize the industry. It is vital to have an understanding of how unions target caregivers, and the laws impacting unionization efforts. Moreover, what can be done internally to maintain an issue-free workplace is the single most effective response to unionization efforts. Mr. Spinola and Mr. Rose will provide a primer on how to respond to the an organizing campaign, and the legal process unions follow when attempting to organize a workforce, the signs of union activity.
Date: Thursday, February 20
Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., EST
The Webinar will be recorded for future reference
