    Build Back Better – Act II in 2022?

    After Senate Democrats failed to achieve consensus on the Build Back Better bill (BBB) by the end of 2021, what are its prospects for passage in 2022?

    As the Senate resumes work in January, the BBB has been sent to the back burner for at least a few weeks, while the upper chamber prioritizes voting rights legislation.

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., told members he expects some version of the BBB to pass eventually. Considering Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., rejected the $1.7 trillion House-passed package, it is widely accepted the bill will require a major rewrite before coming up for a vote. Schumer, however, remains adamant it will all work out in the end.

    Please Join Us for a Breakfast Briefing with the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce

    Hiring and Recruitment Issues during COVID Times and a Tight Labor Market

    Employers in the Fox Valley were dealing with a tight labor market before 2020 but now things are even more challenging. In this highly politicized environment, federal contractors, healthcare, and large employers are bracing for the impact of a federal vaccine mandate. This program will examine how to discuss an applicant’s vaccination status during the interview process as well as other COVID-related topics. We will also discuss other legal challenges, such as: the potential liability impact of modifying your pre-hire drug test process, the legal implications of providing hiring incentives or recovering them if a new hire leaves, and how to avoid a discriminatory hiring practice, among other hiring issues. This program is free and is presented by employment attorneys James Macy and Jill Pedigo Hall from von Briesen & Roper. We welcome every company’s participation and input.

    Making the deal: what business leaders need to know now about buying, selling or raising capital

    Despite some disruption to the deal market caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the fundamentals of getting transactions done – buying, selling and raising capital – are still largely consistent. During this webinar, we will review what the transaction world was like in the first few months of the pandemic; why deal-making quickly got back on track; and then take a closer look at what is currently motivating sellers and buyers. The webinar also will examine how both sides are weighing the valuation question as well as what issues C-suite leaders and boards should be considering during the deal-making process.
