Here's Why You Should Come:
Employers with operations in California - from established corporations to emerging and startup companies - face unique challenges. California law often sets the national trend with employment law developments predating changes across the country. This workshop is aimed at helping participants learn about the latest legal developments and explore ways they may avoid liability by developing preventive strategies.
