As is the case every year, a new year brings new compliance challenges for California employers. And this year, Governor Brown has been busy! Get up to speed on 2016 employment laws taking effect, and discover how they will directly impact your HR policies and procedures.

We’ll also take a look at some of last year’s case law having a significant impact on California employers, and Governor Brown’s key veto of the bill that would have attempted to stop mandatory employer arbitration provisions.

You’ll leave the briefing ready to protect your organization from potential litigation in the areas of:

     • Sex/Gender Wage Differentials 

     • FEHA Retaliation Claims
     • Mandatory Paid Sick Leave
     • Wage Statement Violations
     • Use of E-Verify System
