Session #1:
Navigating California Employment Laws in the Future Workplace
California employment laws can be challenging to navigate and compensation issues can be a legal landmine. Discover strategic ways to handle the new gig/freelance worker, the remote worker and issues that arise with your flexible work options. We’ll analyze the risks employers should consider when managing a detached workforce, including unsecured data, violations of wage & hour laws and workers’ compensation issues. 

Key Takeaways:
1. Attendees will review a list of the areas of concern with gig/freelance workers
2. Overview of wage and hour changes in light of trends in the workplace 
3. How to avoid wage and hour penalties

Session #2
Complying or Lying: Is Your Independent Contractor Really An Employee?
Independent Contractor v. Employee? Exempt vs. Non-Exempt Employee? The recent California Supreme Court decision rejecting the current standard for determining classification of workers as employees or independent contractors is a good or a bad example of this problem, depending upon which side of the ruling you’re on. If your employees work from home, if you have independent contractors who make their own hours and use their own equipment, you may be at a loss for how to classify them. Worse yet, you may be inadvertently setting your company up for a lawsuit. Join PIHRA and expert attorneys from AALRR to discuss, not only how to remain in compliance, but also how to structure your workforce as a strategic business partner to your company. 

Key Takeaways
1. How to appropriately classify workers as employees or independent contractors 
2. Specific tips to properly evaluate an independent contractor position 
3. Identify gray areas of liability
