With California’s unique employment laws, every new hire can result in large-scale liabilities if a company does not have ongoing proper compliance and monitoring. Because this level of supervision can be costly and consume management’s time and attention, early stage companies frequently find themselves unprepared to cope with employee challenges some learn to do so only after an expensive “lesson”. In addition, contrary to what some companies have heard, there are no “exceptions” for small, start-up or entrepreneurial companies. All private employers, large and small, must obey the same restrictive laws. Registration begins 7:30 a.m., or register online here.
