Please join us for Sheppard Mullin's Breakfast With Your Labor Lawyer Seminar Series. This year, you will have to face many new developments in California labor and employment laws that will significantly affect the way you run your day-to-day business operations. We will provide you with analysis and insights on these new laws and offer practical advice and helpful tools to ensure compliance and protect your company from liability in the workplace. We will cover:

  • Consequences and risks of increasing minimum wage
  • Risk of rounding
  • Timesheet certifications
  • Importance of accurate time records and document retention policies
  • Voluntary meal period waivers for healthcare employees

  • New tip pooling rules under federal/state law

High Risk Areas for Employers

  • Uber/Lyft litigation and other service technology platforms
  • Vendor engagement for payroll processors
