Don’t miss the next Labor Law and HR Forum on Thursday, September 20. 

Managing employee relations can be overwhelming for employers. One area of concern is navigating the maze of mandated leaves their workers are entitled to under state and federal law. To help our members unravel the mystery of employee leaves, join us on Sept. 20 for our next Labor Law & HR Forum.

Local employment law attorney Jerry Pearson, of Young Wooldridge LLP, will provide tips and tools for employers to effectively manage the Family and Medical Leave Act, California Family Rights Act, the American Disabilities Act and workers’ compensation. Pearson will also explain what happens when these mandated leaves of absence collide and the conflicting eligibility requirements
employers must know. You will learn:

    • When do you have a responsibility to provide an employee with a leave of absence?
    • Which leave of absence applies? FMLA, CFRA, PDL, ADA?
    • Which leaves of absence can an employer run concurrently?
    • What obligations does an employer have when an employee does not qualify for a statutory leave, or when an employee does not return from a leave?

This event will be held at the Chamber office, 1725 Eye Street. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m., with the program following from 8-10 a.m. Cost is $25 for members; $50 for nonmembers. A light breakfast will be served. Click here to save your seat. Cancellations must be received 24 hours in advance to preclude billing.
