Don't Get Burned by the California Sun: Learn The New California Developments and Trends for 2017

SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: You will learn critical changes in California law and emerging trends for 2017.

Repeated from Monday at 2:00 p.m.

Too many times you get burned by changes in California law. Sometimes, you find yourself reacting to new California trends as opposed to proactively planning for those emerging issues. This course will identify the critical California developments for 2017 which could burn you. This session will cover:

  • How the changes in the federal Fair Labor Standards Act impact California where in the past California HR practitioners did not have to be so concerned with the FLSA.
  • The emerging issues in leave management including the always challenging interplay with disability, family and medical leave and the new sick day laws.
  • The emerging trends in the hiring function. 
Date(s) & Time(s):
