California employers continue to face many new challenges as a result of an active legislature and court system – and now local governments are making new laws too. Several cities, including Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, have enacted their own minimum wage and paid sick leave ordinances. The U.S. Department of Labor plans to dramatically raise the salary threshold for white-collar overtime exemptions this December, new state and federal rules on transgender employees have been issued and unions and plaintiffs’ lawyers are busier than ever. This fast-moving program will cover the essentials you need to know in order to address these challenges.

The program will also include a presentation on the Ninth Circuit ruling yesterday holding that class action waivers in arbitration agreements are unlawful. This decision will have a significant impact on California employers as well as nationally.
