Navigating Your Course in the Changing World of Franchise HR

Please join us for the International Franchise Association's Quarterly Franchise Business Network lunch meeting.

Our Spring speakers will share insights on efforts to educate the public on the impact of recent regulatory actions, including how to navigate the treacherous waters surrounding human resources issues in franchising, in light of recent NLRB and Department of Labor positions regarding joint employer status and franchisor responsibility for franchisee HR functions. We will also hear how and when outsourcing might present an alternative strategy for franchise employers in light of those rulings.

Baker Donelson hosts this quarterly networking event to bring franchisors, franchisees and industry suppliers together for substantive programming and conversation on the latest business and legislative developments in the franchise world.

Our Presenters:
Alfredo Ortiz
President and Chief Operating Officer, Job Creators Network

Melva Tate
Principal, Tate & Associates, LLC

Moderated by:
Joel Buckberg
Shareholder, Baker Donelson

An open forum for questions and discussion will follow the presentations.

Presentations will be viewed via video conference in our Birmingham, Knoxville, Memphis, Nashville and New Orleans offices.
