Learn what the state Legislature and Seattle City Council plan with policies that affect retailers across the state
By: Lobbyists Mark Johnson, Bruce Beckett, John Engber
What you will learn:
Retailers who aren’t paying attention to the government can get blindsided when new policies or regulations get enacted. Our lobbyists work in the thicket of those plans and have valuable insights to share on how to get ready.
Join us as Washington Retail’s Government Affairs lobbyists Mark Johnson, Bruce Beckett and John Engber cover major issues upcoming in 2020 including some laws and regulations already on the books in Seattle and across the state. They will cover possible future impacts and how you can get involved to help shape policies that could affect you regarding overtime pay, scheduling, consumer data, hiring contractors, employee rights and others.
There’s much to learn to be a successful retailer. Hear our lobbyists explain how you can be better prepared to meet government requirements heading into the New Year.
Presenters: Mark Johnson, Senior VP of Policy and Government Affairs; contract lobbyist Bruce Beckett specializing in labor law; John Engber, Director, Retail Industry Coalition of Seattle.
