Do you know that California is the leader of COVID-related lawsuits?
Join the March San Diego HR Forum Meeting to learn about Legal Issues Related to COVID-19 for California Employers.
In addition to navigating California’s new four-tier system for re-opening, trying to stay current on CDC, OSHA and California Department of Public Health Guidelines, and deciphering the new federal and state-specific laws, California employers have been forced to make a myriad of logistical and other decisions (often with little time to plan) that will impact how, and perhaps if, they weather the COVID-19 storm. Most of these decisions also bring with them varying levels of risk from employment claims; and while the typical California employer is no stranger to lawsuits, the unique issues associated with remaining operational during a pandemic present liability concerns as novel as the new coronavirus itself.
During this highly engaging session, Todd R. Wulffson, a Partner at CDF Labor Law LLP, will examine the recent surge in COVID-related employment litigation in California, and focus on best practices employers to take in order to avoid a costly, legal infection.
- Overview of the various COVID regulations and laws applicable to CA employers, including laws related to mandating employee vaccinations
- Best practices for avoiding claims of failure to provide a safe environment
- Work from home issues
- Avoiding discrimination claims from employees
- Avoiding whistleblower claims
- Leave issues
- Wage and hour issues for employees
- Employee privacy issues and best practices
