Are you ready for 2020?
California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2019, planning new surprises for employers in 2020. To fully protect the workplace from costly employment disputes and administrative audits, California employers, managers and human resource professionals must stay abreast of the ever-changing landscape of employment laws in our state and cities, as well as cases decided by California and federal courts throughout the year.
