2010 saw significant developments in employment law in both the federal and California legislative landscapes. At the same time, state and federal courts remained active issuing employment-related decisions in 2010. Those developments and decisions, along with increasingly activist administrative agencies seeking to expand enforcement of both federal and state employment law have created numerous potential pitfalls for California employers. At our first breakfast briefing of 2011, we will guide you through these important developments and lay out practical suggestions designed to help avoid California’s increasing minefield of employment laws.
Specific Briefing Topics Include:
- A recap of 2010 California employment legislation including:
- a new leave law and potential implications for your business; and
- meal period carve-outs;
- Key wage and hour court decisions including:
- classification of workers as exempt from overtime laws;
- premium pay for missed meal and rest periods;
- the potential impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to accept review of Dukes v. Wal-Mart on wage and hour class actions; and
- the expanded definition of “employer”
