Proskauer Plans SeminarOn California Employment Law

Tuesday, March 1, 2005 - 00:00

Proskauer Rose LLP this month is planning another breakfast seminar in its Law & the Workplace series under the title California Dreamin'.

The program will take place on Monday, March 7 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Newark Club, One Newark Center, 22nd Floor, Newark, NJ.

Companies with employees in California must comply with labor code and fair employment laws that differ sharply from those found in other jurisdictions. Failure to understand and deal with these variations can expose out-of-state national and international businesses to liability in employment litigation and prove to be a nightmare for in-house counsel and human resource professionals.

Companies not headquartered in California need to thoroughly understand the many recent and forthcoming changes in California's laws to ensure compliance and to protect the corporation and local management from decisions that may result in administrative charges and federal and state court complaints.

In this fast-paced briefing, experienced California employment lawyers will review the critical California law variations, including all of the most recent developments, that can help an employer avoid costly litigation and compliance problems.

Speakers at the breakfast session will be Anthony J. Oncidi, Arthur F. Silbergeld and Harold M. Brody, all Proskauer Rose attorneys.
