Workplace Laws & Community Associations

July 31, 2018

Welcome to this edition of Community Matters podcast, where we discuss issues important to managing and governing condos, cooperatives and homeowner associations.

CAI members – including management companies and community associations that are employers - are subject to numerous state and federal laws that govern the workplace. Compliance with these employment laws is critical to avoiding litigation. We'll be reviwing these laws in this episode with Philip Voluck, owner of the national law firm Kaufman Dolowich and Voluck. For the last 40 years, Phil has represented employers, including community associations, who have been faced with claims of discrimination or wrongful termination by former employees, rejected applicants, and other parties. For more information on the firm, please visit their website.

Community associations have long dealt with the issue of cigarette and other types of smoking, but does medical marijuana require new ways of thinking for community association managers and elected leaders?
