Medical benefits for retired public employees may be determined by state law (PEMHCA),  MOUs, local legislation, or  personnel policies.  As the cost of these benefits increases, public employers are exploring strategies to mitigate the burden on the tax and ratepayers.  

The 2015 schedule has been set for our popular free labor and employment law training program! The year’s eight sessions include webinars and in-person events.

SB 854 made several changes to the laws governing how the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) monitors compliance with prevailing wage requirements on public works projects. Most of these changes modify the responsibilities of awarding bodies and went into effect immediately (because the bill was adopted as an urgency measure), but others will be phased in this year.

Please join public agency negotiator Eddie Kreisberg as he provides his unique perspective on negotiating following the Great Recession and during this period of political change. More than ever, agencies need to know how to approach vexing health, retiree health and pension issues, and the realities of making deals amidst changing and tight budgets. Grab a sandwich and join us.
