Please join us on October 26 for a complimentary one-hour webinar program designed for in-house counsel and human resources professionals, led by the attorneys of Vedder Price, to discuss new California employment laws and recent case law developments.

The California legislature has passed dozens of new employment laws and amendments to existing laws during the 2017 legislative session that have been submitted to Governor Brown for approval. These new statutes are scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2018. This webinar will provide an overview of the most notable changes coming in 2018 and a review of significant employment cases from 2017.
