Sheppard Mullin attorneys will discuss recent important developments in labor and employment law at both the state and federal level. We will explain how these new developments will affect the day-to-day decisions made by business owners, in-house counsel and human resource professionals. We will also discuss the current trends in employment litigation and how employers can protect themselves from liability in the workplace. We will cover numerous topics, including but not limited to:

Discrimination & Wrongful Termination

  • Discipline for conduct caused by a disability
  • Disability leaves of absence: how long is too long?
  • 100% workers' compensation disability rating: what does it mean for your duty to accommodate?
  • Help protect your company against a discrimination class action

Arbitration Agreements

  • Best practices to help ensure your arbitration agreement is enforced
  • Class action waivers, including the recent Supreme Court decision in AT&T Mobility
  • Risks and benefits of arbitration 

Wage & Hour

  • Overtime law for non-California residents
  • Overtime for nonexempt employees paid a salary
  • Reporting time pay
  • How the DOL may be helping your employees sue you!
  • Split shift premiums

This seminar will be informative and interactive. Our attorneys will stay after the presentation to answer all of your important legal questions.
