Please join us at our next Executive Breakfast Seminar for a comprehensive discussion about challenging termination situations, the FLSA final overtime rule, and a California legal update. 

Challenging Termination Situations: 
How should employers handle challenging employee terminations? We will discuss best practices for terminating employees who have filed internal or external complaints, employees who have requested or returned from medical leave, and employees who present a potential security threat, among other issues. 

FLSA Final Overtime Rule: 
On September 24, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor announced the publication of a final rule amending the “white collar” exemptions from the minimum wage and overtime pay requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The new regulations will take effect on January 1, 2020. We will talk about steps employers should take to prepare for compliance. 

California Legal Update:
A number of new employment laws took effect in California in 2019, including increases to California’s minimum wage and exempt salary thresholds, changes to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, and additional training requirements and protections relating to sexual harassment. Several new employment laws will also become effective in California in 2020. We will discuss both the 2019 and 2020 laws and their implications on employers with a California presence.
