Labor and employment law is an ever-shifting legal landscape; human resource professionals can struggle to maintain steady footing as rules and regulations change. Especially when daily HR administrative tasks keep schedules packed, it’s hard to find time to scan the legal news horizon for what’s ahead. That’s where Employers Council comes in. Our legal services team is immersed in the latest employment law updates day in and day out.
Yes, we provide affirmative action, labor relations, pay equity, administrative representation, and California-specific legal services. But Employers Council also makes it simple to stay on top of recent legal developments in labor and employment law—and understand how they impact your organization. Here are five resources that can cut down on your individual legal research time and significantly boost your employment law knowledge:
Employment Law Webinars
Designed for convenient attendance from your desk (and on-demand viewing and reviewing afterward), our employment law webinars keep you schooled on the newest employment law changes.
The next installment is “Legislative Update: What You Need to Know,” the second webinar in Employers Council’s Exceptional Workplace Series. On June 16, our attorneys will debrief attendees on some big cases and new regulations impacting businesses right now. They’ll touch on new government agency attention on retaliation rules, OSHA’s fresh heat-related illness regulations, the FAIR Act of 2022 still in play, and more. The webinar is free for members, $59 for non-members, and will be available for replay after June 16.
