Downey Brand In-Person Employment Seminar

Join us for our Annual Employment Law Briefing in person on Thursday, January 19, starting at 3:30 PM. Instead of our usual lunch, we will be hosting a happy hour from 3:30 – 4:00 PM and then beginning the presentation shortly thereafter. Downey Brand employment law attorneys Cass Ferrannini, Liz Stallard, and Alex LaFountain will provide an overview of significant legal developments in California and federal employment law, including a review of employment-related legislation and recent court decisions impacting employers in 2023 and onward. Topics discussed will include:

  • New discrimination/harassment laws, including protections for cannabis users (AB 2188), reproductive health decisionmaking (SB 523), and public access to employee restrooms (AB 1632)
  • Expansion of employee leave laws, including new “designated person” requirements under the California Family Rights Act (AB 1041) and new protections for bereavement leave (AB 1949)
  • The latest with COVID-19, including exposure notice requirements (AB 2693), workers’ compensation presumption extension (AB 1751), and job protection for emergencies (SB 1044)
  • Wage and hour updates, including minimum wage increases, pay date reporting and pay transparency (SB 1162), and meal and rest breaks for public sector healthcare workers (SB 1334)
  • Privacy law updates, including the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) of 2020 and employee GPS tracking (AB 984)

HR professionals, business owners, in-house counsel, office managers, and front-line supervisors are encouraged to attend.
