The Chamber Hits HR for Business

When I first stepped into the batter’s box at the Chamber in 2016, the Cubs were about to win their first World Series since 1908, Donald Trump was elected President, Fidel Castro passed away, and NASA declared it the hottest year on record for Planet Earth. As the saying goes, the one constant in life is change. That certainly applies to the world of business and California labor laws, which is why we are proud to have brought the annual HR Update to you in partnership with O2 Employment Services and the Shasta EDC.

If you weren’t part of the 120 people who registered for the FREE webinar, don’t fret. Here is a link to the complete recording of the update, which covered:

Jakes Blog Graphics 4COVID-19 Update
Equal Employment Opportunity
Wage & Hour
Fast Food Council
Leaves of Absence and Benefits
Background Checks and I-9 Documents
Miscellaneous Statutes & Court Cases Affecting Employers
Preparing for 2023/Follow-up Questions

Connecting the local business community with resources such as this is one of the ways we advocate on your behalf to bring important information to you, in this case, delivered by local subject matter experts.

Remember, the Redding Chamber of Commerce is also a part of the CalChamber, which advocates at the state level on behalf of business to identify and “kill” proposed legislation that would be bad for business. Oftentimes, the Redding Chamber signs on in support of CalChamber’s efforts on a proposed bill.

I am thankful for the immense human capital with our Chamber of Commerce membership. If you have a specific challenge that you need help with please reach out to us and we will do our best to walk with you through it. Please send me a note at jake@reddingchamber.com.
