“Leave” Me Alone!
After a year of meeting virtually over Zoom we are excited to announce that SDHR Forum monthly meetings will once again take place in person!
Join us on August 17th at the Farmer and the Seahorse in Torrey Pines. We can't wait to see you again and we hope you'll join us.
2020 and 2021 have brought unprecedented changes to California leave laws, which were already complex and difficult to navigate. Among these changes, the California Family Rights Act has been expanded to apply to small employers and has also been expanded to cover additional reasons for leave, requiring virtually all employers in California to learn (or re-learn) the ins and outs of this complex law. This program will review the changes, its impact on other leave laws, and review in general the landscape of leave in California. The program will also cover continuing employer obligations regarding leave related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Note: Please be aware that we follow CDC recommendations and we will ask everyone to wear their masks during the event (vaccinated or not) when not actively eating. We will also limit the guest capacity to 50% and space out our seating properly to maintain social distancing.
