EMPLOYER EDUCATION is the key to aligning legal strategy with company expansion and success. A client who grasps the critical importance of such basics as employment documentation, screening, hiring, training, compensation, benefits, privacy, safety/security, discipline, investigation and termination, to name a few, is a client armed with tools to eliminate the hugely expensive potential of having to defend one or more employment-related lawsuits.
Thus, we provide regular seminars on the following topics:
Employment law basics seminar
This is a one-day seminar for business owners, executives, and human resources staff. Attendees will learn many of the vital legal basics, the knowledge of which will help them plan the growth and expansion of their business.
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 effect of these new laws. Notable changes include mandatory paid sick leave for employees, expanded workplace discrimination, harassment and retaliation protections (including extended rights for unpaid interns and volunteers and for non-citizen immigrant workers), and more comprehensive harassment prevention training for supervisors.
From experience reflected in his Martindale-Hubbell “AV” (highest possible) rating, Mr. Bowles’ 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 this new year.
Mr. Timothy Bowles offers an annual version of this presentation in January and February of each year in Pasadena. The seminar covers all the significant legal changes in the federal and state workplace laws for the successive year. This seminar includes sample hard-copy employment forms, policies, and an employee handbook. Contact us if you wish to learn about our Employment Law Basics Seminar. Learn more…
Unlawful harassment in the workplace seminar
It is unlawful for any California employer “to fail to take all reasonable steps necessary to prevent
discrimination and harassment from occurring”- Government Code section 12940 (j), (k).
California Government Code section 12950.1 requires all California employers with 50 or more employees or independent contractors to provide two hours of “classroom or other effective interactive sexual harassment training and education” to each California-based supervisory employee every two years.
While employers may direct their supervisors to fulfill this California harassment training requirement by online training, there are compelling reasons why a live, in-person session for all of a company’s supervisors is the better choice. These include:
- Immediate question and answer sessions.
- Interaction with trainer and participants.
- Employees pay closer attention.
- It’s more fun.
- Role-playing opportunities.
- Updated material, with proper emphases.
- Customized areas of training.
- Training can be tailored to meet the group’s needs.
- Preventative measures emphasized.
- Live training confirms the company’s commitment to effectively address and prevent improper conduct.
The Law Offices of Timothy Bowles provides this California-mandated anti-harassment, discrimination, and retaliation training and education. We deliver our live interactive seminar in two ways:
- At your location: For larger companies, we are now setting dates to provide on-site seminars for a flat fee.
- Seminar in Pasadena: We are providing a seminar at a designated location, seats secured by advance reservation.
