It is often said that it is impossible for an employer to fully comply with all of California's employment laws. They are just too numerous, too complicated and too often changing - and seldom for the better. There are so many traps for the unwary, but the stakes of getting It wrong are quite high for California employers. A simple mistake can lead to a seven-figure jury verdict or a class action lawsuit. 

California Employment Law: An Employer's Guide is the go-to guide for anyone who must contend with employment law In California as part of their day-to-day work, Including employers based outside of California who have employees working in the state.

This valuable reference is updated to address new developments in 2019, including:
  • Legislation extending the Dynamex ruling regarding independent contractors to virtually all aspects of California law, but with numerous new exceptions.
  • Legislation seeking to outlaw mandatory arbitration of employment disputes and new court-imposed standards for arbitration agreements.
  • New and stricter rules for lactation accommodations.
  • The effect of the new California Consumer Privacy Act on employers.
  • Increases in the minimum wage and their effect on other pay thresholds. 
  • New NLRB rule regarding confidentiality during workplace investigations. 
  • A brand new chapter on Workplace Safety and Health.
