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.
