Semi annual H/R legal update

Post Date: November 6th, 2013


The East County Personnel Association November luncheon with attorney Cindy Freeland presenting an H/R legal update  


The California Legal Landscape … does it need trimming, fertilizing, or watering?

In 2013, the California Legislature and California courts have been busy enacting and effectuating changes to the legal landscape for employers, and there are more potentially significant developments on the horizon about which all employers, regardless of size, should be aware.  On November 21, 2013, Cynthia A. Freeland, a partner with Schor & Freeland, LLP, will discuss significant cases and legislation that are shaping or will shape the way California employers should approach wage and hour practices, leaves of absence, terminations, and the use of social media in the workplace.  Ms. Freeland also will suggest some early New Year’s Resolutions for fostering a workplace with decreased risk of liability and increased potential for productivity.
