7-9pm Chapter Announcements, Program, Dinner
Shivani Sutaria, Esq., joins us on November 9 to pick up where she left off from last spring. As you know if you were there, there is a lot to learn every day when it comes to employees and employment policies. You know that as a small business employer, it is overwhelming to keep on top of California’s constantly-evolving and complicated employment laws. But falling behind is not an option 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 November 9 meeting:
- Wage and Hour Law Requirements, Part 2
- California’s Paid Sick Leave Law, Vacation, Leaves of Absences
- Discrimination and Sexual Harassment
