Leaves of Absence – Sacramento
Apr 6 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

http://store.calchamber.com/10032188-mastloa/training/seminars/leaves_of_absence

Managing leaves of absence isn’t easy. Plenty of documentation and tracking are involved, which aren’t so simple when leaves are intermittent or when California and federal rules overlap.

Then there are California’s unique and rather complicated leave laws, such as paid sick leave. With all of the law’s intricacies, employers are clearly confused—and with good reason.

Join our employment law experts for this one-day intensive seminar as they address common and more difficult-to-resolve issues related to leaves of absence:

  • What benefits apply whether the leave is paid or unpaid
  • Eligibility requirements for various leaves
  • Required notices from the employee and the employer
  • What leaves require employers to continue benefits such as health care
  • When employers must pay an employee on a leave of absence
  • How different leaves interact with each other

Our experts speak specifically to state and federal laws regarding:

  • California paid sick leave
  • California and federal family and medical leave
  • Leave as a reasonable accommodation for a disability
  • Pregnancy disability leave
  • Other leaves such as PTO, kin care, jury duty and USERRA

To avoid penalties or costly litigation, it’s essential to understand all required and optional leaves of absence, plus the differing California and federal legal requirements that apply to them. Makes sense.

Product Features

  • Comprehensive overview of differing California and federal rules for required and optional leaves of absence

Live Webinar: Are Drug-Free Workplaces in California Up in Smoke?
Apr 20 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

http://store.calchamber.com//10032189-dfw/training/live-webinars/are-drug-free-workplaces-in-california-up-in-smoke

Breathe easy, everyone. Even with the recent passage of Proposition 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, employers can still prohibit drug use, possession and impairment at work, and test for drug use when appropriate.

The challenges facing employers won’t be maintaining your drug-free workplace policies and practices, but rather properly communicating and enforcing these policies and practices—now that adults can legally use marijuana for recreational purposes.

Join CalChamber’s employment law experts to help clear any haziness you may have about Proposition 64 and the workplace. Topics include:

  • What Prop 64 means for employers
  • When and how drug-testing is permitted in California, including pre-employment and reasonable suspicion testing
  • Implementing and enforcing drug-free workplace policies
  • Supervisor training
  • Best practices
