October 27, 2022 – Along with the largest economy in the United States, California also has a uniquely complex, highly regulated employment law landscape. A new treatise from PLI Press, California Employment Law, serves as a comprehensive resource on the statutes and case law governing the employer-employee relationship in the state, providing practical guidance on state, local, and federal rules and regulations.
Edited by experienced California attorneys Lindsay Hutner of Greenberg Traurig LLP, and Erin Pulaski of Rudy, Exelrod, Zieff & Lowe LLP, with contributions from more than 30 experts, the book provides up-to-date, practical guidance on a wide range of employment law topics, such as formation of employment relationships, employment contracts, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, trade secrets, leaves of absence, wage and hour laws, and class actions. It analyzes key provisions of laws such as the California Fair Employment and Housing Act and the California Labor Code and Wage Orders, while highlighting the significant differences between state and federal laws.
The treatise will be updated annually with important developments in this rapidly changing area of law.
Attorneys in law firms, in-house at companies, and in government agencies, as well as compliance and HR specialists will benefit from the book’s comprehensive and practical guidance.
