The Changing Regulatory Landscape
Business/Operations Breakout Session
Regulatory changes for 2019 have already gone into law; regulations that we have grown to understand and manage are evolving in real time and the biggest disruptions to our long-term planning are on the horizon in 2022. Managing transportation has changed dramatically with the passage of ELD, or the electronic logging of truckers’ hours. Regulations managed by TTB are not static. Changes in tax policy are befuddling small business owners. H2A is a program being used by more businesses in California yet the implementation poses changing hurdles for those who adopt this labor solution. 2022 will seek the full implementation of $15 minimum wages and 8-hour workdays, exerting even more pressure on ever shrinking margins and necessitating a plan to mitigate and manage this severe disruption in the wine and grape business as we know it.
