2020 has changed how we work, and this program will explore the newest legal developments affecting California employers of all sizes. The 2020 workplace has seen stay at home orders; work from home; furloughs and layoffs; essential workers; social distancing and workplace safety measures; contact tracing and reporting; and quarantining employees with and without pay. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has spawned many of these developments, while other new laws are unrelated to COVID-19 and add to the compliance obligations for all California employers. These developments set the stage for a likely rise in government scrutiny of workplace practices and employment-related lawsuits. Please join Troutman Pepper’s California Labor & Employment Team as we revisit employment developments from 2020 and report on upcoming changes for 2021, including:
Worker Classification and Wage and Hour Updates
Expanded Leaves of Absence, Paid and Unpaid
COVID-19 Workplace Safety Guidance and Compliance
Workers’ Compensation Presumptions and Reporting Requirements
