As a small business employer, it is overwhelming to keep on top of California’s constantly-evolving and complicated employment laws. But it is a must in the litigious environment in which we operate our businesses.
A recent study revealed that businesses in the U.S. have greater than 1 in 10 chance of having an employment practices charge filed against them. Employers based in California have a 42% higher chance of facing an employment charge than the national average. Do everything in your power to not become one of these statistics – starting with becoming educated on the following employment law topics at the May 11, 2016 meeting:
- The Basics on Wage and Hour Law (minimum wage, overtime, meal and rest breaks, timekeeping requirements, exempt v. nonexempt)
- Legality of Flat Rate Pay
- California’s New Paid Sick Leave Law
- Recent Employment Lawsuits against Auto Repair Shops
