It is often said that it is impossible for an employer to fully comply with all of California's employment laws. They are just too numerous, too complicated and too often changing – and seldom for the better. There are so many traps for the unwary, but the stakes of getting it wrong are quite high for California employers. A simple mistake can lead to a seven-figure jury verdict or a class action lawsuit. CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT LAW: AN EMPLOYER'S GUIDE is the go-to guide for anyone who must contend with employment law in California as part of their day-to-day work, including employers based outside of California who have employees working in the state. This valuable reference is updated to address new developments in 2020, including: – Amendments to the California Family Rights Act extending coverage to employers of five or more employees and permitting employees to take leave to care for a broader range of relatives. – New and more extensive exceptions to the Dynamex ruling and AB 5 regarding independent contractors. – The ballot initiative allowing certain “gig economy” workers to remain independent contractors.
