Paul Ostroff authored an article in the March 2016 issue of Oregon Business magazine titled “Major Employment Law Challenges Facing Employers in 2016.” In the article, Ostroff discussed Portland’s new “Ban the Box” ordinance; new regulatory initiatives concerning overtime and independent contractors; and ways for employers to plan for these developments so their companies can remain competitive and compliant. Ostroff stressed in the article that “Employers should begin assessing their options, and making preparations now. Careful consideration of both the business and legal aspects of managing compliance will be the key to reducing potential liability and maintaining profitability.”
