NEVADA CITY, Calif. April 26, 2018 – This one-hour course will try to make sense of some of the most common California and federal employment laws, providing a perspective from both the employer and the employee. Topics to be discussed will include:
1. The employment relationship, including “at-will” employment, employment contracts, and employee vs. independent contractor questions.
2. Wage and hour laws, including minimum wage, meal/rest breaks, overtime, sick/vacation time, and “exempt” employees.
3. Issues relating to job interviews and employee privacy, employer recordkeeping/posting requirements, employee discipline and termination, and non-discrimination rules.
