The Top 10 Employment Law Developments for 2019

Presented by: Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, PC — Shareholder, Douglas J. Farmer

Over the past 12 months an unprecedented number of court decisions and statutes have radically changed the way human resources and payroll managers must approach legal compliance. Courts have significantly modified tests for independent contractor status, changed how employers must calculate bonuses, increased risks of "off-the-clock" work, and significantly regulated the payment of commissions. At the same time, the legislature has saddled employers with a wide range of new statutes imposing anti-harassment training obligations, employer leave requirements, and other significant changes to the HR landscape. In this fast-paced session, one of California’s premier employment law practitioners will identify new and emerging areas of risk and provide state-of-the-art, practical steps for meeting these new challenges.
