The annual HR Employment Law Workshop returns on Jan. 8 

December 31, 2019 (South Lake Tahoe, Calif./Nev.) – The South Shore business community is invited to attend the Tahoe Chamber’s annual Level UP Workshop: HR Employment Law Update on January 8 from 12 to 1:30 PM. Two attorneys from MOBO Law LLP, Keenan Hawkins and Damon Booth, will brief business owners and managers on the important labor law changes coming in 2020 and teach attendees how to keep their business and themselves protected in the face of these changes.

According to the study by global insurer Hiscox, U.S. based companies have a 10.5% chance of having an employment charge filed against them; however, the risk for businesses in California and Nevada are 46% and 55% percent higher than average, respectively. Many charges can be prevented by remaining informed on employment law changes.

This critical workshop will provide attendees with the latest changes in business law and how to adjust operations to be compliant. Topics will include the new minimum wage and federal minimum salary, hairstyle regulation restrictions, lactation accommodations, sexual harassment training restrictions, and more.

Workshop facilitators, Keenan Hawkins and Damon Booth, are both associate attorneys of MOBO Law who are licensed to practice law in both California and Nevada. Hawkins focuses his practice on business, construction, and intellectual property law. He has worked closely with MOBO’s transactional department since 2013 to provide a wide variety of legal services to a range of clients across California and Nevada, as well as worked on MOBO’s payroll and employment matters, and served as its HR Director from 2018-19.

Damon Booth focuses his practice on business law, civil litigation, and estate planning. Booth provides a wide variety of legal services to clients in California and Nevada. Having prior civil litigation experience, Damon offers unique strategies in protecting the interests of his clients, all while implementing creative solutions for each legal matter he handles.
