CalChamber to Host Live Webinar for California Supervisors

Recorded Webinar Now Available

Live webinar is mobile-optimized for viewing on tablets or smartphones.

The California Chamber of Commerce is hosting a live webinar on September 20 to remind California employers of how important it is to make sure supervisors are well-versed in California’s employment laws.

That’s because the responsibility of managing employee relations most often falls on California supervisors, who must enforce HR policies, address employee grievances appropriately and honor accommodations.

Avoid the legal and financial perils of noncompliance. Register your California supervisors for this targeted webinar that provides helpful guidance and best practices for:

  • Navigating the hiring process, including questions you can no longer ask applicants;
  • Complying with wage and hour requirements such as overtime, and meal and rest breaks;
  • Managing leaves of absence;
  • Dealing with paid sick leave;
  • Making reasonable accommodations;
  • Avoiding claims of discrimination and retaliation in employment decisions;
  • Responding to complaints of harassment;
  • Enforcing company handbook/policies; and
  • Disciplining or terminating an employee.
