The series meets in four, 90-minute online sessions (11:45am - 1:15pm PST)



It’s no surprise to most of us that California has more complex employment and labor laws than any other state in the union. Four 90-minute online sessions set out the core concepts in key areas: discrimination, wage and hour, leaves of absence, and restrictive covenants.

You’ll examine the essential elements of doing business in California and develop policies and practices to ensure compliance with California’s unique laws.

Thursday September 3: California Discrimination Laws — what makes California's Equal Employment opportunity laws different? Find out what matters in this risky area.

Thursday September 10: California Wage and Hour Laws — simply complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act will not ensure compliance with California's wage and hour rules. Explore the integration of state and federal wage and hour laws.

Thursday September 17: California Leave Laws — California's leave laws extend well beyond the requirements of the Family Medical Leave Act. Learn to navigate leave laws like a pro.

Thursday September 24: California's Laws on Restrictive Covenants — the use of restrictive covenants is limited in California. Explore alternative strategies to protect your business assets.
