California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2014, planning new surprises for the employer in 2015. To fully protect the workplace from costly employment disputes, employers, managers and human resources professionals must stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape of employment laws in California.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Jonathan Fraser Light will review the new laws effective in 2015, as well as providing key tips arising out of cases and administrative matters decided in 2014.

Topics covered will include the following:

  • Mandatory paid sick time
  • Minimum wage increases (and the resulting impact on related wage and hour laws)
  • New FEHA prohibitions regarding discrimination against undocumented workers
  • Expansion of supervisory training requirements to address prevention of abusive conduct
  • New protected categories including unpaid interns and volunteers
  • Joint liability codified for host employers using temporary and staffing agencies
  • Leaves of absence and expansion of "Emergency Rescue Personnel"
  • Arbitration: prohibitions for civil rights claims
  • Telecommuting as a reasonable accommodation
  • Clarifications to the inside sales exemption
  • Piece rates and rest breaks -- new issues
  • Review of over 100 new laws and cases!
