Governor Cuomo recently gave his 2018 State of the State address, which covered his policy agenda for the upcoming year. The address included many proposals, many of which will be included in his 2018-2019 Executive Budget Proposal, and others which may be proposed through different methods throughout the rest of the year. Here is an overview of issues included in the State of the State address that are significant for NYSH&TA:
official call-in pay regulation comments
Following several meetings with DOL, the following comments were submitted with the input and guidance of NYSH&TA’s Parks and Attractions Council, which is comprised of seasonal businesses that will be negatively affected by the Department of Labor’s proposed regulations. These proposed regulations would directly impact the Miscellaneous Wage Order. NYSH&TA will keep its members apprised of any immediate developments.
webinar on workplace drug and alcohol testing
This webinar will address current issues in workplace drug and alcohol testing, and will provide guidance to employers who are considering a drug and alcohol testing program as well as those who already test. Medical and recreational marijuana in the workplace pose particularly difficult challenges for employers in light of recent court cases decided in 2017.
