Keeping up with employment law in California is, well, a challenge. While you know about harassment, discrimination and retaliation, what about other risky state law claims such as defamation, fraud/misrepresentation, negligent hiring and privacy? Add to that list dress codes, meal breaks, various leave laws, English only rules and training requirements. This information-packed session will teach you what you need to know and provide prevention tips into these and other risky areas of California law.
