- Tensions in the Workplace: A Roundtable Discussion10.29.20
We strive to create a workplace where everyone feels safe bringing their “entire authentic self” to work. Sounds great, in theory. In application, however, this approach inevitably leads to tension among coworkers. The tension might arise from social media content, message board chats, watercooler talk, or other discussions on topics about which people tend to have strongly held positions and beliefs.

- Steps to negotiating a “labor peace agreement” and “collective bargaining agreement” when dealing with a union11.11.20
Fisher Phillips and Cannabiz Team invite you to a one-hour webinar about unions and the cannabis industry.
With the cannabis workforce booming, many state statutes require cannabis employers enter into Labor Peace Agreements with labor unions as a means to organize the workers into a union. Once organized, cannabis employers must bargain a collective bargaining agreement with the union. In this virtual seminar, Fisher Phillips cannabis labor lawyers will advise how to negotiate a state compliant Labor Peace Agreement, what happens after employees organize a union and how to negotiate a Collective Bargaining Agreement.
If you’re a cannabis retailer, distributor, testing laboratory, or cannabis event organizer, you won’t want to miss this informative program. Other cannabis industry partners that will benefit from attending are Professional Employer Organizations (“PEOs”), cannabis consultants, and financial investment firms. We look forward to helping you gain a better understanding of cannabis employers’ legal obligations and how to address these important labor relations issues.

Starting January 1, 2021, the California Family Rights Act applies to employers of five or more employees.

Join us in this informative webinar that will tell you about the CFRA’s requirements and share best practices.
