2018 Procopio Labor & Employment Seminar

You are invited to join Procopio's Labor & Employment Law attorneys for an informative and interactive program focused on the most pressing California labor law issues facing employers today, including:

The Procopio Brief:  Recent Legal Developments Affecting California Employers

With employment litigation forecasted to increase significantly in 2019, California employers must be aware of and comply with many complex and sometimes confusing legal requirements.  In this interactive presentation, Marie Burke Kenny and Brook Barnes will provide expert analysis and insight regarding the most significant new laws and court decisions impacting employers. From wage and hour issues to pay equity, discrimination and harassment, Marie and Brook will share practical guidance on how to make informed employment decisions and avoid liability. 

#TimesUp: Managing and Minimizing Liability For Employers in the #MeToo Era

In the era of #metoo, employers are facing more challenges in responding to employee complaints and preventing litigation.  In this presentation, Annie Ellis and Amber Gardina-Quintanilla will cover the impact of the #metoo movement on employee and public perception, agency enforcement, judicial handling of employment cases, and passage of legislation.  Annie and Amber will also guide employers on how to effectively prevent, respond to, and investigate complaints in the workplace with the overall goal of minimizing exposure and PR issues.

Marijuana, Assistive Animals and Other Quirky Issues in the Workplace

So your employee wants to bring his/her emotional support pig to work – do you have to allow it?  Can you still test for marijuana use now that recreational marijuana is legal?  Do you have to accommodate an employee with social impairments or one who cannot get along with coworkers or supervisors?  Join Wendy Tucker and Stephenie Alexander for a discussion of the unique and challenging issues that employees can raise in the workplace and what you should do to accommodate them.

Back By Popular Demand:  The Interactive Q&A Panel

Phillip L. Kossy will moderate a panel of experienced Procopio employment law attorneys – Tyler Paetkau, Olga Savage, and Lauren Vega who will engage directly with audience members to address burning employment law questions.  Please submit your questions when registering for the seminar. The earlier you submit your questions, the more likely your questions will be addressed. So submit now!

The Hosted Reception After The Show

Please join us for a hosted networking reception immediately following the Q&A discussion and enjoy delicious drinks and scrumptious hors d'oeuvres. This is the perfect time to ask any of the presenters your most important one-on-one employment questions that may have not been addressed during the Q&A discussion.
