CALIFORNIA LABOR LAWS 2016: « Law Offices of Timothy Bowles | Top Employment Law Firm in Los Angeles


Weathering the Winds of Change

Annual Seminar for Employers

All-Day Sessions Will Cover Employment Legal Essentials,
New Workplace Laws for 2016

Friday, January 29, 2016
Friday, February 26, 2016


2016 brings significant change in California workplace laws that employers must know and apply.

Over an intensive day-long session, labor and employment law specialist Tim Bowles will present his annual review of the workplace legal basics, with emphasis on the reach of these new laws. Notable changes include mandatory paid sick leave for employees, expanded workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation protections (including extended rights on age discrimination and sexual harassment as well as clarified definitions of mental disability), and several important developments on wages, salaries and other compensation (including a far-reaching Labor Code section imposing several new requirements on companies offering production-based (so-called “piece work”) pay.

Our updated model employee handbook policy and forms will be available in conjunction with this seminar.
From experience reflected in his Martindale-Hubbell “AV” (highest possible) rating, Mr. Bowles’s presentation also includes important refreshers and insights on the legal basics of personnel management.

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 2016.

These sessions are always well-attended, informative and, dare we say it, entertaining:
“This was a very eye opening, informative seminar…learned a lot about California labor law and how to act and handle (an) employee in the correct manner. Tim is an exceptional person and professional that I respect a lot.”

“Really enjoyed it. Well presented by someone who knows this area.”

“I’ve learned something of immense value from every seminar by Mr. Bowles. If I was to compare his seminar to something, I’d say it’s like getting a casual walk through the ins and outs of how to handle personnel in your company. It’s just that simple and easy and useful. I love how everyone learns and expands on their skill and how visible this is during the day.”
