Event Description

CAPHRA is pleased to announce the first program for the 2018-2019 season...

The Janus Aftermath: What’s Next?


Registration is open now to attend our CAPHRA program on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at the Fish and Boat Commission headquarters, 1601 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, 17110. 


On June 27, 2018, The United States Supreme Court issued a 5-4 opinion in Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, Council 31, holding that requiring nonmembers of public-sector unions to pay fees to cover collective-bargaining activities violates the First Amendment. This decision overturned a forty-year precedent that had previously allowed non-voluntary “fair share” fees to be deducted (Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, 1977).


Join us and Jay Gasdaska, Director of the Office of Employee Relations and Workforce Support, as we consider impacts of the Janus decision on all aspects of Commonwealth human resources, including:

  • the historical background of Union due collection in the Commonwealth;
  • an analysis of the Janus decision and what the Janus decision means for HR professionals;
  • changes to Union access to new employee orientation and employee personal information;
  • how to handle workplace tensions between union supporters and those who opt out;
  • how Janus and the upcoming gubernatorial election will impact the current round of pattern bargaining.


In his role as the Director of the Office of Employee Relations and Workforce Support in the Governor’s Office of Administration, Jay Gasdaska is responsible for overseeing the Commonwealth’s labor relations, equal employment opportunity, employee benefits, and workforce support programs.  Prior to accepting this role in 2017, Jay served as the Director of the Bureau of Employee Relations for ten years.  As part of its mission, the Office negotiates the terms and conditions of employment with the twenty unions that represent over 60,000 Commonwealth employees.


This program is free to CAPHRA members and $5.00 for guests.  Visitor parking is available free of charge onsite.


To celebrate the start of a new program year, CAPHRA will be providing a variety of sandwiches and a beverage to all attendees.  Please feel free to bring your favorite tailgating snack or dessert to share; we know the HR community has some excellent cooks!  (Yes, Pam, I am dreaming of your awesome dessert!).  


The program starts promptly at 12:00 PM and will end at 1:00 PM.  Lunch will be available starting at 11:45 PM.  Please remember to register by COB on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 for this event so we know how much food to prepare.  


If you have any questions about the program or dietary restrictions, please feel free to contact Tim Pucino, Program Chair via email at at via telephone at 717.705.9358.
