Classification Do's & Don'ts While Independent Contractors may be a necessary and strategic component to your business, the IRS, Workers Compensation, Department of Labor and other state agencies are concerned with whether a worker has been misclassified. During this webinar, we will discuss nuanced differences among various tests deployed for determining the status of workers as either employees or independent contractors, including discussion of the January 9, 2024, Department of Labor ruling favoring employee status. These designations have substantial consequences in the event of misclassification. We'll also discuss the Pros & Cons of Each: - How to decide whether to hire a contractor vs. employee; - Documentation necessary to prove workers qualify as independent contractors; - Benefits of hiring an independent contractor or employee; and - When you would want to hire an employee instead of a contractor.

Understanding Rachel, Explore Silent Spring author Rachel Carson’s nature in this wildly inventive lecture/performance by fellow Pittsburgher Elise Robertson, who inhabits multiple characters and uses found objects and visual imagery to interweave her own messy coming-of-age with Rachel’s, as they struggle with their identities as artists, mothers, and truth-tellers. Elise Robertson, was born (60 years later) just a few miles from where Rachel Carson also grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and developed a similar love for nature exploring the same woods and streams. She graduated from Northwestern University's theatre department with concentrations in performance studies and fine art. As a writer/director, Elise is known for her dramatic adaptations of literary works for PBS, including Peabody-nominated Ralph Ellison's King of the Bingo Game, and F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Sensible Thing. In 2019 she directed the award-winning short film Darling, Darling, Wendy, a dark reimagining of the Peter Pan story from Wendy's perspective, which has screened all over the world. As an actor, Elise has 100+ film, tv and commercial acting credits, including Academy Award nominee American Sniper, NCIS, This Is Us and many more. She is currently recurring on Amazon Studios' The Power and Freeform's Good Trouble. Elise loves a good story, and believes that the worlds we imagine have the power to transform the one we live in. A mother of two girls, she hopes to create content that is inclusive, inspiring and female-positive. Imagining Rachel is her first foray into solo performance.

This once annual celebration was put on hold during the height of COVID-19, but we are pleased to see it return for it's 9th installment in 2024. The International Edible Book Festival is an event celebrated in libraries around the world. It began in 2000 by two women who wanted to combine love for literature with love for food and cooking. Participants can sign up to bring an Edible Book and enter it into the competition to WIN PRIZES! But what is an Edible Book? It's a food or beverage item inspired by literature or a love of reading. It can be a recipe mentioned in a book, or something inspired by your favorite books or characters. Or it can be more broadly about libraries or literacy. Judges will examine (and taste) the entries to decide winners, and attendees will get to sample the Edible Books as well and vote for their favorites. Register to either be a contestant and bring an Edible Book or to just attend. Read more about Chatham's past celebrations on our blog and about the festival itself to prepare!

A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2024 AT LITHUB AND BOOKSHOP.ORG Presented by the MFA program. Co-sponsored by the Women's Institute. Books by White Whale Bookstore. The discovery of a secret garden with unknown powers fuels this page-turning and psychologically thrilling tale of women yearning to become mothers and the ways the female body has always been policed and manipulated, from the award-winning author of The Illness Lesson (“A masterpiece” – Elizabeth Gilbert) In 1948, Irene Willard, who’s had five previous miscarriages in a quest to give her beloved husband the child he desperately desires and is now pregnant again, comes to an isolated house-cum-hospital in the Berkshires, run by a husband-and-wife team of doctors who are pioneering a cure for her condition. Warily, she enlists herself in the efforts of the Doctors Hall to “rectify the maternal environment,” both physical and psychological. In the meantime, she also discovers a long-forgotten walled garden on the spacious grounds, a place imbued with its own powers and pulls. As the doctors’ plans begin to crumble, Irene and her fellow patients make a desperate bid to harness the power of the garden for themselves—and must face the incalculable risks associated with such incalculable rewards. With shades of Shirley Jackson and Rosemary’s Baby, The Garden delves into the territory of motherhood, childbirth, the mysteries of the female body, and the ways it has always been controlled and corralled. .Event page: http://www.chatham.edu/events/details.cfm?eventID=32468 Mellon Board Room Women's Institute WomensInstitute@chatham.edu
