Webinar Sponsored by United Agencies Insurance

Please join us on​ Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at 8:30AM to 12:00PM (PST) for our annual employment law update event, entitled, “The Continuing Impact of COVID in the Workplace.”

As we enter the second year of the COVID pandemic, the ever-changing rules governing the workplace will continue having an impact on how businesses operate. The Cal- OSHA requirements and guidelines from state and local agencies on quarantine, return to work rules, and pay for leave due to COVID will continue to be in place (with frequent amendments) for the foreseeable future. In addition, the status of federal vaccine mandates remains uncertain.

Although COVID remains a primary focus for employers, there have been a variety of new employment laws adopted that become effective this January, along with important court decisions impacting wage and hour compliance.

At this informative virtual briefing session, Erick Becker, head of the Labor and Employment practice at Cummins and White, will update you on all of the changes to employment law on both the state and federal levels.

Attendance at this webinar will help human resources professionals, managers and business owners navigate the complex employment landscape in California.

This Legal Update will address new California laws, including:

(SB 331): Prohibits restrictions on employees sharing information on harassment and discrimination and requires specific carve out language in settlement and separation agreements and non-disclosure agreements.

(SB 807): Extends retention of personnel records to four years.

(AB 1003): Authorizes criminal penalties against owners and managers for wage theft.

(AB 1033): CFRA Expansion Adding Parents-in-Law as family members.
