Brian Koegle

With an eye toward the fast approaching new year, local attorney Brian E. Koegle will present an up-to-date overview of the ever-changing laws that affect “Doing Business in California,” during the fall 2012 College of the Canyons Chancellor’s Circle Breakfast Briefing.

The presentation will include a look ahead at anticipated court rulings and legislation that will affect the employment landscape in 2013, along with new state and federal employment laws that could wind up costing employers hundreds of thousands of dollars.

During the event, Koegle will present tips and information for business owners interested in taking the necessary steps to help ensure compliance with these laws, in order to avoid costly fines and/or litigation fees.

Also included will be other useful insights about topics including:

* An update on new wage/hour policies (Brinker implications, Wage Theft Protection Act notices, and commission agreement requirements)

* Harassment, discrimination and retaliation in the workplace

* Social media pitfalls and perils

* Hazards associated with employees working “off the clock”

* Employee privacy issues

“Many small businesses owners don’t have the time to stay on top of all of the changes in the law,” said Koegle. “However, even one, small violation could be financially catastrophic for a smaller company, making it essential for business owners to ensure they are armed with the latest information and ‘best practices’ to avoid those mistakes.”

The fall 2012 Breakfast Briefing will take place at 7:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, Room 258, on the college’s Valencia campus (University Center Drive entrance).

Breakfast will be served beginning at 7:30 a.m., followed by the morning’s main presentation at 8:15 a.m.

Registration for the Chancellor’s Circle Breakfast Briefing is free for Chancellor’s Circle members and $15 for non-members. Tickets are available through the COC Foundation.

All reservations must be received by Friday, Nov. 30. Space for this event is limited.
