4/20/2018
Laguna Beach, CA

Rebecca Stephens presents "Blindfolding Employers: New Laws In California and Other States Further Restrict Job Applicant Information" at the Network of Trial Law Firms event Litigation Management: Overcoming the Ocean of Complaints, Trials and Motions.

Topic: As a leader, California has many positive qualities; however, it maintains a strict set of rules governing the employment relationship from the hiring process through termination. For example, the California legislature further restricted employers with two 2017 laws limiting an employer’s ability to learn about an applicant’s criminal background or salary history. Similar laws are materializing in other states as well. This program will highlight California employment laws relating to job applicants, discuss nationwide employment law trends, and define best hiring practices for companies with employees in California.
