CalChamber to Host HR Boot Camp

New to human resources or want a refresher? The California Chamber of Commerce is helping build HR muscle at a one-day, topic-packed HR Boot Camp seminar focused on the employment life cycle, from hiring through termination.

CalChamber’s employment law experts explain core fundamentals of the employment life cycle, in addition to discussing compliance requirements, policies and best practices.

“We’ll be sure to address hot issues on everyone’s mind, such as Prop. 64 and drug testing, local ordinances for minimum wage and paid sick leave, and the recent court decision affecting rest breaks in California,” said Erika Pickles, co-presenter and CalChamber employment law counsel.

It’s an interactive day packed with clear explanations and helpful information for business owners, managers or anyone who handles HR as part of their job.

CalChamber’s employment law experts (your personal HR trainers) explain and provide compliance information for these core fundamentals:

  • Hiring, including I-9 verification and criminal background checks;
  • Discipline and termination;
  • Wage and hour; exempt and nonexempt classifications;
  • Meal and rest break requirements;
