Everything Old Is New Again:

The 2019 Employment Law Update!

The Templeton Chamber of Commerce is hosting a lunch featuring guest speaker employment-law attorney Susan Waag of LightGabler on January 29, 2019 at McPhee’s Grill in Templeton from 11:30am-1pm.

California courts and our legislative representatives have been busy in 2018, planning new surprises for employers in 2019. Even if you just have 1 employee, you will be affected by these actions.

Whether you are a small business owner, HR professional, office manager or anyone looking to keep a business from getting sued, you will benefit from learning how to navigate the complex and potentially confusing roster of legislation you will need to handle.

Employment-law attorney Susan Waag of LightGabler will present an informative legal update of the new employment requirements in 2019.

Among the key topics she’ll cover:

  • Numerous “#MeToo” laws, including a requirement for employers with 5 or more employees to provide sexual harassment prevention training for all employees (not just supervisors)
  • Mandatory changes to employee contracts and settlement agreements on the topics of sexual harassment and confidentiality
  • Amendments to the FEHA's protected categories and required policy updates for all employers
  • Updates to rules on background checks and criminal history regulations
  • Minimum wage increasing again - is your wallet/payroll-processing ready?
  • Overtime changes for agricultural workers
  • Dissecting the new “ABC” rules of classifying workers as independent contractors or employees
  • Clarifications to the ban on seeking salary-history information
  • Arbitration do's and don'ts, and the U.S. Supreme Court’s view on class waivers
  • Paid Family Leave amendments (this affects all employers… even if only 1 employee!)
  • Women on publicly-traded California-based company boards of directors
  • Additional requirements for training about human trafficking
  • Much, much more….
The lunch is open to members ($30) and non-members ($35) of the Templeton Chamber of Commerce. This event will sell out so register for tickets online at or by calling (805) 434-1789 by January 28th.
