Pettit Kohn Employment Attorney Ryan Nell Speaking at 2019 PIHRA Legal Update

Employment Law Attorney Ryan Nell will speak throughout the month of January as the Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA) take their 2019 Legal Update on tour throughout Southern California.  The full-day seminars will feature attorneys from 14 different law firms.  The attorneys will provide the latest developments and insights into the complex world of California labor and employment law.  The focus is to help companies and organizations minimize risk and exposure to employment litigation in 2019.

Mr. Nell’s topic, “Marijuana in the Workplace in California,” will address the recent adoption of legislation legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.  He will summarize the recent changes in both state and federal law as it relates to both medicinal and recreational marijuana usage, as well as discuss the best practices for employers to maintain legal compliance.

The 2019 PIHRA Legal Update is approved for up to six HRCI and SHRM recertification credits and will take place in four convenient locations across Southern California. For more information, or to register for a seminar near you, please visit PIHRA’s 2019 Legal Update website:
