The regulatory maze of labor laws can be complex. And as the core of your HR management functions it can also be confusing for both you and your employees.
There issues such as hiring practices, employee classification, and wage requirements that necessitate time to research so you can ensure proper compliance.
California labor laws tend to favor employee lawsuits while employers find themselves increasingly limited by regulations.
Many states, including California, have laws prohibiting employers from taking any job-related action against a worker based on that worker’s lawful conduct off the job.
There is now the possibility of new CA labor laws limiting an employers ability to consider criminal background information when hiring.
Legal statistics show that due to violations of labor law, California employers often find themselves facing employee lawsuits. The truth is that many business owners and their managers often break employment laws unknowingly. And, unfortunately, this can result in employee claims which can lead to time-consuming and costly fines and even lawsuits.
