Board of Trade to host shutdown call

October 13, 2013

The Greater Washington Board of Trade is slated to hold a conference call Tuesday meant to provide guidance on how companies can handle the federal government shutdown, now going into its third week.

The session is intended for chief financial officers, chief executive officers, legal officers, chief administrative officers and human resources directors, the Board of Trade said, and will address a whole range of questions, from donating and tracking paid time off to handling stop-work orders. The session is also meant to answer questions relating to employee separations and rehiring and how companies can manage temporary changes to HR policies. Listeners may submit their own questions.

Jim Dinegar, chief executive of the Board of Trade, and Jim Corcoran of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce will facilitate the call. Betsy Lewis of Cooley, representatives of KPMG and Ernst & Young, and representatives from an employee assistance program provider will be on the call.
