The Golden State is at the forefront when it comes to new developments in employment law. In response, Proskauer has launched its California Employment Law Update blog, which is dedicated to reporting on and commenting about the latest changes to the state's myriad laws and regulations in the employment realm.
"Everyone knows California leads the nation in coming up with innovative and challenging new ways to regulate the workplace," said Anthony Oncidi, Partner and head of Proskauer's Los Angeles-based Labor & Employment Law Group. "Whether these developments come from our appellate courts, the Ninth Circuit, the labor commissioner or the legislature, it is a full-time job keeping up with the rapid pace of change in the state where one in every eight Americans lives. This blog harnesses the collective talents of those lawyers in our firm whose daily practice focuses on monitoring and understanding these developments while providing our clients with practical advice about how best to comply with these laws."
Timely recent topics featured in the blog include: "New Federal and State Guidelines on Intern Pay," "Ninth Circuit Reversed in Sexting Privacy Decision," "California Supreme Court Limits Scope of Wage and Hour Liability," and "Tip-Pooling Is Not Prohibited Under FLSA."
Proskauer's current roster of blogs also includes the Privacy Law Blog, New Media & Technology Law Blog and Not-For-Profit/Exempt Organizations Blog.
