Webinar: What California's Changing Employment Landscape Means for Employers

Anothony Oncidi David Weisenfeld

California employers seemingly need a scorecard to keep up with all of the employment law changes occurring each year. And 2019 has been an especially busy time in the Golden State. From the #MeToo movement to diversity to placing limits on the gig economy, these laws are creating a host of challenges that employers cannot afford to ignore.

In this engaging 60-minute webinar, long-time California employment attorney Anthony Oncidi and XpertHR Legal Editor David Weisenfeld details all of the key developments and what they mean as a practical matter for your organization.

Oncidi heads the labor and employment law group in Proskauer's Los Angeles office and represents employers in all aspects of employment law and labor relations, including litigation and preventive counseling. Weisenfeld has featured a host of California employment law issues in his reporting for XpertHR and as part of the company's podcast series, which he hosts.

Among the changed requirements for California employers in the sexual harassment area include:

  • Expanded sexual harassment prevention training requirements;
  • Ending secret settlements in sexual harassment cases; and
  • Restricting employers from preventing future testimony.

The speakers examine limits on independent contractors as well as other key restrictions of which employers in the state must be aware. If your company has even a single employee in California, it's a webinar you cannot afford to miss!
