Employers have been riding a fantastic employment law wave the last few years. The ride has been thrilling and sometimes - scary. New laws and cases are compelling a stream of policy changes at state, federal and local levels. Handbooks need updating.  Policies & employee classifications need review; and you may even need to recast job descriptions and change positions to stay ahead of the game. Learn how to “hang ten” with confidence as we discuss:

*      New FEHA regulations regarding Harassment, Discrimination and Retaliation (issued on April 1, 2016)
*      Recent EEOC decisions and guidance from landmark cases such as EEOC vs Abercrombie & Fitch (religious attire and grooming)
*      NLRB joint employer rulings from cases such as the Browning-Ferris Industries case.
*      Ban the Box Ordinances popping up in various jurisdictions including a final run by the current administration to create a federal standard (the Federal Fair Chance Act).
*      Minimum wage and paid sick leave ordinances – currently in 15 California cities!
*      New California personal liability legislation – Yikes!
*      New pending OSHA rules for workplace violence
*      And new accommodation considerations for the LGBT community
*      San Francisco’s new Paid Parental Leave Ordinance (effective January 1, 2017);
*      And more …

MISSION CRITICAL -- we will consider how to best handle the new FLSA changes…the first update to the federal wage law since 2004!  More info coming soon.
