California Workplace Law -- Year in Review

Each year I update clients' handbooks based on the new laws, regulations and judicial opinions affecting California employers.  It has been an incredible year.  Employers have a lot of work to do to comply with the new laws. 

Our office has compiled nearly 200 new laws and cases in preparing changes for our clients' handbooks.  To help them understand their obligations, we also provide a training course. 

The training courses are Tuesday and Wednesday.  We still have a couple of seats left.  It is a three-hour course, from 9 am to noon.  Cost is $350.  Join us if you can. Call 559.256.5000 or contact to register. 

If you are worried about the cost, don't be.  One lawsuit can easily cost you $250,000 in attorneys' fees.  Even a simple DFEH or EEOC complaint can cost you $5,000.  So the $350 is a drop in the bucket compared to what could happen if an employee files a claim against you. 

And if you are still worried, don't attend.  I'm ok with that too.  One day, you will be sued and need a lawyer.  I will make a lot more money if you are sued instead of prepared.
