Are you ready for 2021?

It’s that time again -- Happy New Year! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing social and political discord, California courts and our legislative representatives still found time to create new hurdles for employers in 2021. To fully protect the workplace from costly employment disputes and government 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 the cases decided by California and federal courts throughout the year.

Join us at our "new laws" program to prepare for 2021! Topics to be discussed will include (among many others):

  • Amendments to the FEHA's protected categories and required policy updates for all employers
  • Mandatory COVID-19 OSHA notice and Workers’ Compensation requirements
  • Board of director expansions based on gender and underrepresented communities
  • Amendments to AB 5, Dynamex and the use of independent contractors in the workplace
  • January 1, 2021 deadline for sexual harassment prevention training for employers
  • Paid Family Leave expansions

  • CCPA extension for employment files and required CCPA notices
  • Is Human Resources now a mandated CANRA reporter?
