A Guide to California’s Latest #Metoo Laws for Employers:
California recently enacted a barrage of new anti-discrimination laws that will take effect at various times between 2019 and 2021. Employers ranging from 10-employee shops to large, publicly-traded corporations should take notice, as these laws affect nearly every business.
Employee Hire Documents:
We draft arbitration agreements and class action waivers to help keep you protected should a lawsuit arise in the future.
Time and Attendance:
Hiring us will help to ensure you have compliant rest and meal break policies. We also guide you through the next steps if an employee is not compliant.
Employee Termination Documents:
Before you terminate an employee, we walk you through the process and prepare severance agreements and liability waivers to keep you and your business protected.
Paycheck Stub Review:
We review your paycheck stubs to ensure you are in compliance with the law, including sick time and paid time off, so that you can avoid steep penalties.
Independent Contractor Agreements:
As your attorneys, we will assess whether an employee can be classified as an independent contractor or not. And, we will prepare an independent contractor agreement so your company is protected.
Compliance with California Employment Law as it Relates to Business Owners:
We provide you with everything you need in order to remain compliant with California’s employment regulations, including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Employment Development Department (EDD) Audits:
If you receive a letter from the EDD and aren’t sure about the next steps, we are here to help. Since EDD tends to focus on the classification of workers, we help determine whether they are truly independent contractors or whether the worker was improperly classified.
Labor Commissioner Complaints:
If you receive a letter from the California Labor Commissioner, contact us immediately because the resulting penalties and fines can be steep. We can guide you through this process to minimize your potential liability.
Single Plaintiff Lawsuits:
We work with you to build a creative and powerful defense to defeat any employment law claim that comes your way. Because if you’re unprepared, it would be very costly for you and your business.
Class Action Lawsuits:
If you are served with a class action complaint, it’s important that you contact us as soon as possible. We will plan a solid strategic defense from the beginning and stand by your side to defeat any employment class action suit that arises.
