Staffing Industry Legal Updates for 2019
March 5, 2019


Are you ready for 2019?
California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2018, planning new surprises for employers in 2019. To fully protect the workplace from costly employment disputes and administrative audits, California employers, managers and human resource professionals must stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape of employment laws in our state and cities, as well as cases decided by California and federal courts throughout the year. 
Topics to be discussed will include (among many others):


  • Sexual harassment prevention training for employers with 5 or more employees (all employees, not just supervisors)

  • Deciphering numerous new laws on sexual harassment prevention in the workplace

  • Updates to rules on background checks and criminal history regulations

  • Significant local and state minimum wage changes - is your wallet/payroll processing ready?

  • Overtime changes for agricultural workers

  • Updated DFEH anti-harassment programs, postings, trainings and sample materials

  • Dissecting the ABCs of classifying workers as independent contractors or employees

  • Off the clock work and “extra minutes” on the way out – is it enough to be compensable?

  • New issues on time rounding practices

  • Clarification to the salary history ban

  • Revised lactation accommodation standards

  • Arbitration do's and don'ts and the U.S. Supreme Court’s view on class waivers

  • Many, many more….
