Keeping up with all the changes in California employment law can be a daunting task for most business owners. However, failure to comply with all of the requirements can result in substantial costs – sometimes into the hundreds of thousands of dollars – for your business.
Make sure you’re in compliance, with an employment law update during the monthly Valley Industry Association luncheon, Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 11:30 a.m. at the Valencia Country Club, located at 27330 Tourney Rd. in Valencia.
David Poole and Brian Koegle from Poole & Shaffery, LLP will provide an update on all the recent changes to California law and will ensure you have all the information necessary to comply with the latest requirements. Among the topics will be a wage and hour update, review of social media dos and don’ts, and new rules regarding accommodation and personnel records.
Knowing and understanding the state’s employment laws – and the consequences of not complying – is vital to running a business in Santa Clarita Valley,” said Kathy Norris, CEO and President of VIA. “Poole and Shaffery does an excellent job of both bringing that knowledge to the table and helping people clearly understand it.”

Non-members and those reserving after Feb. 14 pay $50 if seats are still available. Those who attend without a reservation will pay an additional $10, though space cannot be guaranteed.
