November General Membership Meeting - 11/15/16

Changes in Employment Rules: the Impact on Small Businesses, Nonprofits and the Community

The PMA presents a program on the changing rules regarding employment practices. Topics will include local and national initiatives such as paid time off and increasing the minimum wage, two hotly debated issues that have been proposed but have not been passed into law. Plus, the new Department of Labor Paid Overtime Rules that go into effect in December. We will discuss the impact these changes will have on the cost of doing business, the benefits to workers vs. challenges for employers, and the impact of changes on the community, then open it up to an open forum discussion with PMA attendees.

The discussion will include both nonprofits and small businesses with panelists:

Kate Bech, CEO of the Princeton Family YMCA
Brett Bonfield, Executive Director of the Princeton Public Library
Kathy Klockenbrink, co-owner of Jammin’ Crepes
Jack Morrison, owner of JM Group (Witherspoon Grill, Blue Point Grill, Nassau Street Seafood)
Jeff Nathanson, Executive Director of the Arts Council of Princeton
Ian D. Meklinsky, Attorney at Law, Co-Chair, Labor & Employment Department, Fox Rothschild LLP
