Please join us for Sheppard Mullin's Labor & Employment Law Update & Happy Hour Seminar Series. 2018 presents significant developments in California labor and employment laws that will affect the way you run your day-to-day business operations. We will provide analysis and insight on these new laws, as well as offer practical advice and helpful tools for employers to protect their organizations from liability in the workplace. Topics to be covered include:

  • De minimis rule in California
  • New court decision regarding rounding of employee time punches
  • California's new national origin discrimination regulations
  • Status of class action waivers in arbitration agreements
  • Independent contractors: the new “ABC Test”
  • Equal pay, salary history, and pay audits
  • The #MeToo Era: investigations, NDAs, arbitration and other recent developments
  • Disability accommodation and the interactive process
  • Managing leaves of absence
  • Bring Your Own Device: balancing competing employer and employee risks and concerns
  • New PAGA litigation
  • Free/discounted meals ≠ working time
  • Defend Trade Secrets Act and protecting your company’s intellectual property
  • Joint employer determinations under the NLRA
  • NLRB developments: workplace rules and employment decisions
  • Disclosure of employee contact information and impact on union organizing

Our attorneys will be available after the presentation to answer all of your legal questions.
