Annual Employment Law Seminar Covers the New and Enduring Workplace Essentials

California governor Gavin Newsom signed 870 bills into law this year, many of which will affect this state’s employers.

Over a day-long session in January and again in February, employment law specialist Tim Bowles will cover the structure and span of current workplace law from a management perspective, going over the significant 2020 changes for California. Among the topics:

  • Hiring process, including applications, interviews, and testing;
  • Discipline and termination;
  • The essentials of written employment agreements, including the new restrictions on mandatory arbitration;
  • Discrimination, harassment and retaliation prevention and handling;
  • Proper compensation, paid leave and other policy issues; and
  • The game-changing new criteria for classifying independent contractors

The seminar is a must for all business owners, executives and personnel management staff, setting the foundation for confident hiring and stable business expansion in the new year and beyond.

Emphasis is on practical application. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions on their particular legal challenges or concerns throughout the session.

Our updated model employee handbook policy and forms will be available in conjunction with this presentation.

These sessions are always well-attended, informative and, according to some, fun:

“This seminar is a great service to our community and employers of this state.  I feel better able to confront what it will take to put a lawful workplace into existence.  I look forward to attending again next year.” CR

“I’ve attended Tim’s seminar for the last couple of years.  It is efficient, entertaining and very useful.  A great overview of basic employment requirements. Everyone needs to take the time for a yearly update.  I highly recommend it to companies of all sizes.” CF
