10 Things Non-Californians Need to Know About Doing Business in the Golden State

Those who manage (or plan to manage) a California workforce from outside the state will learn the biggest risks facing employers in the Golden State.

It's hard to understand the challenges to doing business in California if you live - and work - somewhere else.

In this interactive session, the speaker , who practiced employment defense both in and out of California, will give you the run-down on the 10 biggest risks non-Californian companies face when choosing to do business in the world's 8th largest economy.
