Volume 5, Issue 2
April 11, 2006

EMPLEO, an alliance of community-based organizations and government agencies (including EEOC, OSHA, Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, and Nevada Labor Commissioner), is presenting a free seminar for employers on a variety of labor and employment topics on May 4 and May 5, 2006 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The session on Thursday, May 4, will cover OSHA, workers' compensation and EEOC matters and specifically address topics including: keeping your workplace safe, obtaining free consultative services, reporting injuries, Nevada's workers' compensation regulatory requirements, and the detection of discrimination and sexual harassment issues in the workplace. Friday's session will address issues related to Nevada labor laws, federal wage and hour laws, and unemployment laws, including information regarding contract-work, recordkeeping, child labor requirements, and the FMLA.

This holding demonstrates that an employer who chooses to employ arbitration agreements must be willing to arbitrate all proper claims - without regard to merit - and abide by the established procedures set forth in the agreement. In order to ensure proper compliance with such important agreements, employers should be cautious to ensure that one central department and/or decision maker reviews and responds to all demands for arbitration.

The seminar sessions will be held at the State of Nevada, Safety Consultation and Training Section, 1301 N. Green Valley Parkway, Suite #200, Henderson, NV (Between I-215 and Pebble Rd.). Attendees should RSVP by calling 702-388-6101 or by sending an e-mail to Sandra Lynch at lynch.sandra@dol.gov.
