Learn all about new California state legislation, new state employment regulations, and select California case law affecting California employers.
Our state legislators were busy in 2019! Here’s a sneak preview! AB 5 now codifies the ABC independent contractor test - What does this mean? Are there any exemptions?; AB 51 purports to ban mandatory pre-dispute arbitration agreements – Are employment arbitration agreements still enforceable in CA?; AB 749 limits “no rehire” clauses in settlement agreements – yes, that right, but are there exceptions?; AB 25 creates significant new privacy rights for certain employers – if you are subject to AB 25 you better start planning now as employers only have until July 1, 2020 to comply with certain parts of the new CCPA and compliance arduous! And, much, much more – new lactation accommodation laws, extension to file certain administrative claims, new FEHA protected categories, to name a few.
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.
You will learn:
Ø All about the new state legislation, applicable new federal requirements, new state employment regulations, and select California case law affecting California employers.
Ø The new “do’s and don’ts” associated with these new laws.
Ø Which policies and forms need to be revised now to be in compliance.
Ø How to train management employees about the laws.”
