Learn all about new California state legislation, new state employment regulations, and select California case law affecting California employers.
The “Me Too” movement has resulted in numerous legal changes that California employers, big and small, cannot afford to ignore. This includes significantly expanded anti-harassment employer training requirements, greater employee rights to disclose and discuss harassment concerns, and expanded employer liability for harassment by employees and non-employees.
If that’s not enough on your plate, our state courts were busy over the past year issuing several new California case law opinions that dramatically change how employers address various employment law issues and employers’ policies, including: the Dynamex decision and the evolution of the “ABC” independent contractor test; the Troester decision and its impact on “de minimis” time compensation requirements; the Alvarado case and flat sum bonuses, as well as developments in the law regarding employee non-solicitation agreements. After participating in this seminar, you will learn:
-- The new “do’s and don’ts” associated with these new laws.
-- Which policies and forms need to be revised now to be in compliance.
-- How to train management employees about the laws
