CalChamber to Host Live Webinar on Local Employment Ordinances

California Chamber of Commerce employment law experts will discuss the trend of California cities and counties enacting ordinances relating to minimum wage, paid sick leave, criminal background checks and more at an upcoming live webinar.

“Local and statewide rules can vary significantly, and even between California municipalities,” says Erika Pickles, webinar co-presenter and CalChamber employment law counsel. “This creates a greater compliance challenge if you have employees working in multiple cities with local ordinances.”

Join CalChamber’s employment law experts on Thursday, June 15 for a local look at:

• Minimum wage, paid sick leave, and criminal background checks;

• Interaction between state and local laws;

• Compliance issues;

• Posting and recordkeeping requirements;

• Enforcement;

• Best practices.
