Attorney Roy Schneider, senior partner of Schneider and Associates, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss the new laws that went into effect on January 1, 2018.
Each year brings new laws and this year is no exception. From requiring changing tables in men’s restrooms, to the multitude of new labor laws, Roy shares lots of valuable information on what is new, and what has changed.
Labor law is one main focus in Roy’s practice. California’s labor laws can be complex and employers need to know what to do to protect themselves. One of the best things that any employer can do is to make sure they have an up-to-date employee handbook, because it covers the laws and answers a lot of the questions.
If there is ever a problem and an employee makes a complaint to the Labor Commissioner, the Labor Commissioner will want to see the handbook, so employers need to make sure they have the most current handbook.
Roy discusses the changing minimum wage, how minimum wage differs with number of employees (and location!), and what an exempt employee actually is. The details of these laws in California are astounding and can be very confusing.
The new laws also outline what questions can be asked during an interview or on an application.
What are the new laws regarding family leave? What is sexual harassment training? Gender neutral restroom requirements? Tune in and find out these answers & more!
This is a fascinating interview, filled with information that all employers, and employees, need to know!
