    Season 1, Episode 3 – An Employee By Any Other Name…: Pitfalls to Staffing a Modern Workforce

    Join lawyers from Polsinelli’s Labor & Employment Department for the 2019 webinar series. The series will be presented in three installments and take a deep dive into complicated areas of employment law to provide you with practical advice on how to respond when you are faced with similar issues.

    In Season 1, Episode 3, Matthew Scoot is back, and decides to designate the warehouse employees as "stocking consultants" in order to classify them as independent contractors to save on benefit costs. Staffing your workforce in a modern world has gotten more complex. In addition to employees and independent contractors, companies also utilize temporary staffing agencies and professional employer organizations (PEOs). In this episode, our panel will discuss strategies for avoiding the common pitfalls that arise in connection with employee classification issues, including how to appropriately classify exempt employees, utilize independent contractors, and understand the risks posed by various staffing solutions.

    Wait a New York Minute – Is California’s Prop 65 Chemical Warning Statute Making its Way out East?

    Earlier this year, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a proposal to add stringent labeling requirements for certain products sold in New York through the “Consumer Right to Know Act” (the “Proposed Act”). While the Governor’s Office has not yet released any formal guidance on the Proposed Act, the Office’s website states that agencies will be directed to “assess the feasibility of on-package labeling,” “establish labeling requirements for designated products,” and “develop a list of more than 1,000 carcinogens and other chemicals that will trigger labeling” requirements.

Broadly speaking, these regulations require manufacturers to make certain product ingredient information available on their websites and on a publicly accessible database.
