What Trust and Estate Attorneys Need to Know About Employment Laws in the Elder and Home Care Industries

Robert Nuddleman will be speaking at the Silicon Valley Bar Association’s luncheon seminar on October 23, 2013.  We will be discussing recent legislative and regulatory changes that will impact people working in the elder and home care industries.

Recent legislative changes and court decisions are changing the landscape for home care workers, companions, personal attendants and the people that employ them. New state and federal regulations will increase the cost of caring for elderly clients and family members in their own homes. Conservators, trustees, and family members are potential targets for unpaid wage claims under recently expanded definition of the term “employer.” In this brown bag, we will discuss the new expansive definition of “employer” and how it impacts trust and estate attorneys. We will discuss how proposed and newly enacted legislation will impact your clients’ bottom line, and what you and your clients can do to limit exposure to potentially costly employment law claims.

The event will be held at the Hilton Santa Clara Hotel (4949 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, California) from noon to 1:00.  Advanced registration is preferred, but you can also pay at the door.
