April & May Employment Law Seminars – Medford & Portland, Oregon

Our Employment Law Seminar is back!    These are challenging times for employers in Oregon’s cannabis industry. Click Here to Register for Portland Seminar Click Here to Register for Medford Seminar As the Oregon cannabis industry matures, we at Emerge Law Group have seen where cannabis employers are succeeding and falling short.  Unfortunately, we are not the only ones taking notice.  The Bureau of Labor and Industries, other government agencies, and plaintiffs lawyers, also have the cannabis industry squarely in their sights.  Investigations, enforcement actions, employee complaints, and lawsuits are on the rise.  The industry can ill-afford to keep employment law compliance on the back burner. With this in mind, Emerge Law Group and Oregon Cannabis Insurance are excited to present a comprehensive employment law seminar for cannabis growers, processors, wholesalers, and retailers.  Emerge attorney, Mark Hackett, drawing on his 25 years of experience advising and defending employers, will discuss the most significant employment law threats facing cannabis industry employers.  Mark will offer practical solutions for addressing past noncompliance and how to avoid problems in the future.  The seminar will also include ample opportunity for participants to ask Mark questions and share their experiences with other participants. After the presentation, please join us for a social hour with drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Sign-up without delay, as our seminars sell out quickly.  Emerge proudly donates proceeds to the Campaign for Equal Justice, a nonprofit that helps fund legal aid agencies to assure all Oregonians have equal access to justice, regardless of economic status.  We hope to see you there! — Thursday, April 5th Medford, OR 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm Location: Inn at the Commons 200 N Riverside Avenue Medford, OR 97501   Click Here to Register for Medford Seminar — Thursday, May 3rd Portland, OR 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm Location: The Cleaners 403 SW Stark Street Portland, OR 97205   Click Here to Register for...
