This year's new California employment laws stand out by the extent to which they require virtually all employers to take proactive steps to comply.  Attend this seminar to learn how to:

• Update sick leave and/or PTO policies to comply with California's new sick leave law, including new insights that can be gleaned from the California Labor Commissioner's recently published answers to FAQs.
• Update your leave policies and practices to conform with the wide-ranging amendments to the California Family Rights Act's ("CFRA") regulations that take effect July 1, 2015.

• Comply with a new California court ruling that requires reimbursement for employees' business use of personal cell phones.
• Modify anti-harassment training to include prevention of "abusive conduct," as required by a new California law.
• Adopt or amend arbitration agreements to preclude California employment law class actions.
• Conduct background checks in compliance with "ban the box" laws being passed across the country.
• Have compliant technology use policies, in light of a recent NLRB ruling that employees are allowed to use company e-mail to engage in protected speech.
