Designed to keep employers ahead of the curve, the presentation will cover a range of critical issues, including the Sexual Harassment Omnibus Bill (SHOB). This sweeping legislation will have a major impact on employers, effectively lowering the threshold for employees to prove sexual harassment in the workplace. SHOB also places limitations on an employer’s ability to obtain a written release of a FEHA claim, while restricting employers’ ability to received prevailing party attorneys’ fees. It even impacts bystander intervention training.

In addition to the Sexual Harassment Omnibus Bill, Bermudez and Chelsea will also discuss:

  • An amendment to law requiring expanded sexual harassment training for smaller employers.
  • Expanded Paid Family Leave benefits for military families.
  • Human Trafficking Training for mass transit and hotel and motel employees.
  • Construction Industry limitations for PAGA claims, and direct contractor liability for wages of subcontractors’ employees.
  • Requirements for women on corporate boards of directors.
  • And more!!!
