Welcome to 2019 and our first meeting of the year!  A new year always seems to be synonomous with 'changes' and this year is no exception.  To help us with these changes we welcome back Jennifer Fields from the Michigan Dept of Labor (LARA) who will help us navigate:

 - Changes to the MI Minimum Wage Act (new increase effective 3/29/19)

 - New Paid Medical Leave Act (new act effective 3/29/19)

 - Overview of MI Payment of Wages and Fringe Benefits Act

 - Overview of Human Trafficking Notification Act


Jennifer Fields is the Wage and Hour Division Manager for LARA and the MI Dept of Labor.  With her wealth of knowledge and experience she will be able to help us unmuddy the waters and get through these changes that her department will be administering as they come into effect.


Please join us for information, discussion, networking and dinner on Wednesday, February 13th at Railside Golf Club.  Dinner will start at 5:30pm with the meeting starting promptly after.  We have a limited number of seats so sign up now!

Don't forget, if you haven't renewed your membership for 2019 or have been thinking about becoming a member now is the time to sign up and you can do this when you sign up for the meeting as well....all in one shot!


I look forward to seeing you all in February!
