If you have even a passing familiarity with the employment laws in California, you know that they’re nothing like the ones that exist in the rest of the country. And if you don’t – well, brace yourself for a rude awakening the first time you encounter them.
California employment laws are complex, often running in tandem with their federal counterparts yet demanding much more of employers. These include the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and myriad state wage/hour laws.
Even experienced California-based HR professionals get tripped up sometimes. And if you’re new to the industry? As they say in some parts of the opposite coast, fugghedaboutit.
Now in its 6th acclaimed year, CELU is the very best way we know of to make sure you’re up to date on everything you need to know about both California and federal law –and how they interact – for the year to come.
We’ve assembled a baker’s dozen of California’s leading employment law experts to clearly explain (no legalese!) everything from social media, to workers’ comp, to leaves, to meals and breaks, and much more – and give you practical tips for staying in compliance and out of court.
If you do any business at all in California, we’d love to have you join us in Berkeley this fall. All the conference info is available here. Plus, if you register by midnight Pacific time this coming Friday, the 24th, you’ll save $100 off your registration.
Questions about the event? Please feel free to contact me directly; I’d love to hear from you.
