On May 16 and 17, 2016, Daniel Berkley and Christina Chen were the first presenters on each day of the Community Care Options & Alzheimer’s Association Spring Educational Conference in Reno, Nevada. Over 400 caregivers attended the conference. Daniel and Christina spoke on “When Generosity Becomes Wage Theft: What Is It and Why Is It Happening?” and “When Employees Game The System.” Dan and Christina continued answering questions into the following lunch hours and at the Fox Rothschild LLP booth throughout the conference.
The topics presented highlighted some of the most pressing issues employers in this industry face and stirred emotional exchanges by all present. Tom Cullen of Community Care Options thanked Daniel and Christina for sharing their time, talent, and knowledge and said that the conference would not have been the success it was without their contribution. Care homes in California have been deluged with wage and hour claims and Daniel and Christina are ready to help.
