The state of California has been administered under a Democratic “super-majority” for many years. Legislation in these states often grants worker wages, rights and protections far above Federally established minimums. In many respects, California imposes restrictions and mandates on employers that are not only expensive to comply with, but expose them to potential HR related lawsuits.

Why should you Attend: The responsibility to implement and notify employers of many laws lies with the California Dept of Industrial Relations. Employers need to review new laws every year, modify their operations as directed, and review the wider aspects of employment law they effect. So join Mark Schwartz for the 2023 Wage and Hour laws version of this webinar. Learn what assembly bills have affected these areas:
  • Minimum Wage
  • Agricultural Workers
  • Overtime
  • Garment Workers
  • Covid-19 related laid-off workers
