Comply With the Ever Changing Landscape of Employment Laws on Recruitment, Hiring & Onboarding in California.

From July 1, 2017 new regulations will be implemented, to limit California employers’ use of background information and criminal history in making hiring decisions. Too many employers bury their head in the sand when it comes to compliance with labor and employment laws, especially when it comes to searching for and hiring new employees. Many do not realize that claims for discrimination and harassment may also be brought by applicants and new hires. The onboarding of new hires is often fraught with costly mistakes. Being proactive and knowledgeable about the hazards inherent in the recruitment, hiring and onboarding process, and the regulations governing those processes, will alleviate many employment problems for the duration of the employment relationship.

This session by expert speaker Jennifer Raphael Komsky, Esq. will provide employers with the tools they need to ensure compliance with the ever-changing landscape of California employment laws concerning the recruitment and hiring of new employees.

This program is essential for anyone tasked with the recruitment, hiring or onboarding of new employees. You will learn an arsenal of proactive steps you can take from the time of placing an advertisement for a job posting to mitigate the risk of employment litigation in California’s ever-changing legal landscape.

Jennifer will also provide reference documents, sample policies and legislative knowledge for regulations affecting the recruitment and hiring of employees in California.
