You can…but with a hefty price. Misclassification on non-exempt employees as exempt can bring significant costs, including overtime pay, interest, and other penalties- not to mention the attorneys’ costs that will be incurred to defend any lawsuits brought by current or former employees. Exempt classification is a complicated matter, and the rules differ between California and Federal law.
Earlier this year, the CA Supreme Court published a decision in the case of Dynamex Operations West Inc. v. Superior Court Los Angeles County. In its decision, the Court created a new “ABC” test for determining whether workers should be classified as employees or independent contractors. Not surprisingly, this decision embraced a standard presuming workers are employees, and placed the burden of proof on employers.

This webinar provides an overview of important employment law changes going into effect in California in 2018. We also discuss legal cases that have been or will be decided by the courts and will affect CA employers.
Employers have a legal duty, under both state and federal laws, to take “all reasonable steps” to prevent harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and other unlawful employment practices. An essential part of prevention is how the employer conducts investigations of employee claims of unlawful behavior. To be legally compliant, workplace investigations must be timely, conducted by a competent investigator, effective, and reasonable under the circumstances.

Marc, who saw sailors go above and beyond in the call of duty, developed a lasting system for improving and sustaining performance through recognition.
