California Employment Law for Multistate Employers: Policy and Practice Essentials for HR - on CD
Employers operating in California must comply with laws far more employee-friendly than those elsewhere. New regulations covering meal and rest breaks, same-sex marriage, harassment training, GINA, healthcare coverage, and other obligations demand versions of workplace policies and practices just for your Golden State operations.
And while most states simply follow the language found in major federal employment laws, California’s legislature routinely passes its own version -- with crucial differences that can trip up multistate employers if you aren’t up to date on the requirements.
That's why it's absolutely crucial for employers doing business in California to take the necessary steps to stay in compliance.
Watch this interactive extended webinar, and you'll learn:
- The major laws and regulations that have earned California the well-deserved reputation of being the most employee-friendly state in the nation
- How to identify the areas in which your employment policies and procedures should be revised to conform with FEHA and its regulatory requirements
- Key differences between CFRA and FMLA
- The rules for calculating overtime the right way
- Restrictions on drug and alcohol testing of applicants and employees
- The questions you’re not allowed to ask regarding the criminal history of an applicant or employee
- And much, much more
