Watch this in-depth 2-hour webinar to catch up on a wide range of important new legal developments for California employers. We cover topics including:

  • Arbitration Agreements: Impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling that an arbitration agreement may require arbitration of individual California Private Attorneys General Act (“PAGA”) claims; litigation update regarding California’s statutory ban on mandatory employee arbitration agreements; recommended updates to employee arbitration agreement forms.
  • COVID-19 Pandemic Legal Update: We'll review the complex pandemic paid leave laws that remain in effect (and provide an up-to-date model policy template), current Cal-OSHA requirements and guidance for workplace safety, recent legal developments concerning vaccination requirements, and the pending California Supreme Court ruling that will decide whether employers can be held liable when employees spread COVID-19 to their households.
  • Layoffs: With layoffs on the rise, we’ll provide a general review and update on special laws and best practices relating to layoffs, including special requirements for severance and release agreements, assessing wrongful termination claim risks with respect to employee layoff selection, recommended documentation to support the business case for a layoff and layoff selections, and the California and federal WARN Acts.
  • Leave of Absence Update: Recent legal developments, including a court ruling that mere discouragement of taking leave can violate FMLA (even without denying a leave request).
  • Wage & Hour Law Update: Review of minimum pay requirements for exempt and non-exempt employees, including recent increases.
  • Other Developments: Including a $2 billion jury verdict in favor of Appian based upon a claim of employee trade secret theft, and a California Court of Appeal ruling that an at-will employee could sue for alleged misrepresentation in the hiring process about the kind of work the employee would perform (under California Labor Code Section 970.
