Are you ready for 2019?

California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2018, planning new surprises for employers in 2019. 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 and cities, as well as cases decided by California and federal courts throughout the year.

Join us at one of our annual Employment Law Update seminars to prepare for 2019! Topics to be discussed will include (among many others):

  • Sexual harassment prevention training for employers with 5 or more employees (all employees, not just supervisors)
  • Deciphering numerous new laws on sexual harassment prevention in the workplace
  • Employer verification changes and the qualified privilege – can you disclose a termination for sexual harassment?
  • Mandatory changes to employee contracts and settlement agreements on the topics of sexual harassment and confidentiality
  • Amendments to the FEHA's protected categories and required policy updates for all employers
  • Updates to rules on background checks and criminal history regulations
  • Significant local and state minimum wage changes - is your wallet/payroll processing ready?
  • Overtime changes for agricultural workers
  • Updated DFEH anti-harassment programs, postings, trainings and sample materials
  • Dissecting the ABCs of classifying workers as independent contractors or employees
  • Off the clock work and “extra minutes” on the way out – is it enough to be compensable?
  • New issues on time rounding practices
  • Clarification to the salary history ban
  • Revised lactation accommodation standards
  • Arbitration do's and don'ts and the U.S. Supreme Court’s view on class waivers
  • Paid Family Leave amendments
  • New employer electronic injury reporting requirements
  • Rest and meal break relief for certain industries
  • Women on publicly-traded California-based company boards of directors
  • More changes to PAGA (the "sue your boss" law)
  • Additional human trafficking training rules
  • Many, many more….
