Join our Sheppard Mullin attorneys as they discuss recent developments in labor and employment law at both the state and federal level. We will explain how these new developments will affect the day-to-day decisions made by in-house counsel and human resource professionals. We will also discuss the current trends in employment litigation, and how employers can protect themselves from liability.

The topics covered will include the following:

  • Wage and Hour Developments
    • AB 569: Meal Period Exemptions
    • Meal and Rest Periods 
    • Alternative Work Schedules 
    • Waiting Time Penalties 
    • Overtime Exemptions
  • New GINA Regulations
  • Suitable Seating 
  • California’s Newest Leaves of Absence 
  • Workers’ Compensation Notice Requirements and Stop Orders 
  • Revised Heat Illness Regulations
  • FMLA/CFRA Issues 
  • Access for Persons with Disabilities 
  • Investigation of Serious Safety Violation 
  • Organ and Bone Marrow Transplant Leaves

This seminar will be interactive and our attorneys will stay after the presentation as long as it takes to answer all of your important legal questions.
