Staffing Industry Legal Updates for 2018
February 28th, 2018


California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2017.  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:

·        Revisions to the FEHA's protected categories, requiring policy updates for all employers

·        CFRA’s 12-week baby bonding now applies to companies with 20 or more employees

·        Untangling the jumble of city, state and federal laws

·        Background checks – California bans the box

·        Pay equity rules expanded – salary history ban takes effect statewide

·        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

·        AB 1825 training now must include content related to gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation harassment

·        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

·        General contractor liability for subcontractor errors/violations
