    This digital seminar tries to answer a few central economic questions related to food prices.

    image

    This digital seminar tries to answer a few central economic questions related to food prices; Is inflation tamed? Will we see some sort of "normalization" in the months ahead when it comes to the broader economy and food prices in particular? Or have we entered a new economic normal of persistent higher inflation, increased wages, higher interest rates and increasing consumer debt? And how will this environment affect the food industry, the price of food at the grocery store, and consumer shopping behaviors?

    Rachel Conn, chair of the California Practice of Conn Maciel Carey LLP, walks through the requirements of the recently enacted Workplace Violence Prevention Law (SB 553).

    3. Maintenance of a Violent Incident Log and Investigation Reports for every incident of workplace violence.

    4. Evaluation of workplace violence hazards, including periodic inspections of the workplace.
