CalChamber to Offer Live Webinar on Local Ordinances

Recorded Webinar Available on CalChamber Store

Not only do employers need to make sure they comply with all California and federal wage-and-hour laws and posting requirements, they must also now keep track at the local level. To help employers with this task, CalChamber is offer a live webinar on Thursday, June 14.

From the San Francisco Bay Area to San Diego, California cities and counties are enacting their own employment ordinances. These local ordinances regulate wages, paid sick leave and other employment matters.

Keep in mind that local and statewide requirements can vary significantly, even between municipalities—all of which creates a greater compliance challenge if you have employees working in multiple cities with local ordinances.

Join our employment law experts online on June 14 for a local look at:

  • Minimum wage, paid sick leave and criminal background checks;
  • Other labor-related ordinances, including San Francisco’s new lactation accommodation and salary history ban ordinances;
  • Interaction between state and local laws;
  • Compliance issues;
  • Posting and recordkeeping requirements;
  • Enforcement; and
  • Best practices.

“Failure to comply, even if inadvertent and quickly corrected, can result in exorbitant penalties that far exceed what the employee is owed,” says Bianca N. Saad, webinar co-presenter and CalChamber employment law subject matter expert.
