From artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and cryptocurrency, the rapid evolution of technology shows no sign of slowing down. Companies in the digital technology sector are among the world’s most highly valued companies, with good reason. And businesses in every sector now use digital technology in all kinds of ways, from basic email to sophisticated data analytics.
Fresh water is becoming a scarce resource in the United States and across the globe as demand continues to rise due to population and business growth. This emergent scarcity means businesses will face more consequences of the complex regulatory and legal frameworks governing water use and water quality.
Michael Best’s Water team understands those issues. We guide clients through the heavily regulated, politically sensitive environment surrounding the management of, investment in, and development of water resources.
All businesses have to comply with government regulations—some more so than others. Our Regulatory practice is designed to serve clients in heavily regulated industries, such as manufacturing and utility services, as well as across various industries in regulated areas that impact business as a whole, such as environmental regulation.

Utah manufacturers face a complex and constantly evolving landscape of employment laws and regulations that affect every aspect of the employment relationship. Missteps can reduce productivity and expose a company to liability. To assist UMA members in meeting these challenges and avoiding pitfalls, Michael Best has developed the HR Academy.
HR Academy is a series of six, two-hour sessions that address the most pressing and regularly occurring issues Utah employer’s face. These sessions are:
In this session, participants will learn about what should and should not be in an employee handbook; agreements employers can put in place to best protect themselves; and policies every employer should have.
The ADA and FMLA can be a nightmare for employers. This session addresses how these laws intersect; issues related to managing leave (including intermittent leave); common problems that arise that implicate these laws; and how to address difficult situations that involve employees with disabilities and/or serious health conditions.
This session touches on every aspect of wage & hour law and includes contractor/employee classification; exempt/non-exempt classification; calculating overtime; improper deductions, etc.
This session presents advanced training on how to avoid and respond to harassment and discrimination complaints. Participants will not just learn the basics. They will discuss real world examples of how to avoid pitfalls related to all forms of discrimination and harassment.
In this session, we discuss all aspects of the front end of employment. This includes issues related to job applications; job descriptions; background checks; offer letters; immigration compliance documents; and the onboarding process, generally.
This session discusses practical steps to ensure workplace safety is at the forefront of all HR practices, effecting both a safe and healthy workplace and compliance with OSHA regulations.
