This webinar provides an overview of important employment law changes going into effect in California in 2018. We also discuss legal cases that have been or will be decided by the courts and will affect CA employers.
Employers have a legal duty, under both state and federal laws, to take “all reasonable steps” to prevent harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and other unlawful employment practices. An essential part of prevention is how the employer conducts investigations of employee claims of unlawful behavior. To be legally compliant, workplace investigations must be timely, conducted by a competent investigator, effective, and reasonable under the circumstances.
