SHRM meeting to focus on holiday issues


The CNMI Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management will be holding a membership meeting tomorrow, Nov. 16, 2016, from 11:30am to 1:30pm at the Pacific Islands Club’s Charley’s. 

All members of the community are invited to attend.

The November meeting will offer a special opportunity to members to hear from one of the chapter’s founding members, Marcia K. Schultz, and from Catherine Cachero, of the law firm Marianas Legal Strategy Group, LLC.

Schultz is partner of Marianas Legal Strategy Group, LLC. She has over 30 years’ experience advising employers in the CNMI about employment law, discrimination, investigations, and formulating policies.  She has been a member of Employers’ Council, the Employment Law Alliance, and a continuing member of the CNMI SHRM Chapter since helping to start it in 1996.

Cachero has handled a variety of employment law and employment discrimination matters, including assisting employers in responding to charges of discrimination and Title VII claims filed with the EEOC and in federal court. She also advises business owners and managers on daily operations and policy issues, including those with respect to compliance with federal and local laws, and drafting personnel policies and procedures. 

They will be presenting on the topic “Holiday legal issues.” Their presentation will explore the Bermuda triangle of the holiday party, religious discrimination, holiday pay and time off, and will provide numerous tips to help employers and human resource managers navigate the pitfalls of the holiday season. Schultz and Cachero will provide an opportunity for questions, so come with any concerns you might have about holiday issues.
