(Including Notable 2009 Legislative and Wage and Hour Developments)

In these tough economic times, employers must stay ahead of the curve. While California has traditionally been at the forefront of legislative changes in employment law, this past year, the California Legislature was relatively quiet on the employment law front. California and federal courts made up for the Legislature’s inactivity, however, by issuing many decisions of consequence to California employers—especially in the wage and hour arena. Congress and federal agencies were also active in legislative and regulatory changes that will impact employers in California.

Learn what these developments mean for you in 2010 at our upcoming February Breakfast Briefing. We will guide you through these changes and discuss practical suggestions to comply with the new laws and avoid unnecessary lawsuits.

Specific Briefing Topics Include:

  • A recap of 2009 California employment legislation
  • Administrative agency regulatory news, including news from the DLSE and the EEOC
  • Notable 2009 federal developments, including The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the COBRA subsidy extension
  • Key wage and hour court decisions regarding:
    • classification of workers as exempt from overtime laws
    • attorney-client privilege and outside counsel
    • deferred stock compensation plans
    • premium pay for missed meal and rest periods
  • California and U.S. Supreme Court decisions on punitive damages, harassment, employee privacy rights, and arbitration agreements
