How to identify the mistakes that your organization may be making, and the practical steps for implementing change. 

Every day, employers make common mistakes without realizing the potential consequences, creating significant liability for their companies in California. What may seem to make good business sense is often completely in violation of the law. Many mistakes happen because the laws are not always intuitive, yet others would be avoidable with better management training and consistent practices. Explore and address these situations with some real-world examples.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify which of the most common mistakes may be happening in your organization.
  • Understand which matters should—and should not—be handled to avoid potential litigation (including final paychecks, workers' comp, overtime, independent contractors, training, pay, COBRA, handbooks, FMLA/CFRA and probation).
  • Discuss real-world stories and how they might have been handled differently.
