California Employment Law Update: Dos And Don'ts For Multistate Employers
|Date / Time:
Employers operating in California must comply with laws far more employee-friendly than those elsewhere. New regulations covering meal and rest breaks, same-sex marriage, harassment training, GINA, healthcare coverage, and other obligations demand versions of workplace policies and practices just for your Golden State operations.
And while most states simply follow the language found in major federal employment laws, California's legislature routinely passes its own version - with crucial differences that can trip up multistate employers if you aren't up to date on the requirements.
That's why it's absolutely crucial for employers doing business in California to take the necessary steps to stay in compliance.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- The major laws and regulations that have earned California the well-deserved reputation of being the most employee-friendly state in the nation
- Which employment policies and procedures to put in place to be in compliance with California's Fair Employment and Housing Act
- The fundamental differences between the California Family Rights Act and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act
- How to correctly calculate overtime wages under California law
- Best practices for hiring employees in California, including the questions you cannot ask regarding criminal history and restrictions state law places on your ability to conduct drug and alcohol testing
- Your obligations under recently enacted state pregnancy disability regulations
- Final paycheck requirements you must comply with under California's Labor Code
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to adjust your policies to meet tough new California employment law challenges. Register now risk free for this interactive webinar for multistate employers.

versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
