Are you ready for 2018?

California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2017, planning new surprises for the employer in 2018. To fully protect the workplace from costly employment disputes and administrative audits, California employers, managers and human resource professionals must stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape of employment laws in our state, as well as a variety of California cities.

Join us at one of our annual Employment Law Update seminars to prepare for 2018! Topics to be discussed will include (among many others!):

  • Amendments to the FEHA's protected categories, requiring policy updates for all employers
  • Untangling the jumble of city, state and federal laws
  • Background checks
  • Pay equity rules
  • Significant local and state minimum wage hikes - is your wallet/payroll processing ready?
  • The DOL white collar exemptions - are they gone for good?
  • Updated DFEH/EEOC guidance on anti-harassment programs
  • Domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking: new posting requirements
  • On-call rest and meal periods spell trouble for employers
  • Compensating certain commissioned employees for rest periods
  • The new I-9 Form - how to tell if you are using the correct version
  • Arbitration do's and don'ts: how will the U.S. Supreme Court rule on class waivers?
  • Paid Family Leave amendments on the horizon
  • City-mandated fully-paid paternity and maternity leave and revised lactation accommodation standards
  • Overtime changes for agricultural workers
  • The requirement of one day's rest in seven demystified
  • More changes to PAGA (the "sue your boss" law)
  • Gender neutral bathrooms (single user)
  • Overtime rules for private school teachers
  • Recreational use of marijuana
  • Much, much more ... don't miss out on all the fun!
