Labor & Employment

Greetings from the Labor and Employment Law Section.

We are a diverse but welcoming group representing both employers and employees. Members enjoy the following benefits:

• $35/credit MCLE for SCBA Programs sponsored by the L & E Law Section
• Free MCLE credits for scheduled brown bag lunches
• Informal networking after section presentations and if there are 20 or more advance sign ups, refreshments (including beer and wine) will be available.
• Section members who present also receive a one hour credit for any SCBA program of their choice.

In 2020, the L & E section will be presenting on AB 5 as it unfolds, sexual harassment training, Cal-OSHA updates, ethical client relationships, ethical questions in taxation of employee settlements, with much more in the works. Over the years, we have covered diverse topics on sexual harassment, privacy, the NLRB, multiple aspects of litigation, mediation, settlements, 998 offers, and taxation, as well as wage and hour administrative proceedings, immigration issues, best practices, and other procedural matters that arise in employment consultation as well as litigation and conflict resolution. Every year there is a comprehensive case update in January. We have also provided significant financial contribution to Legal Aid.

We invite you to join us at any time. For a list of upcoming section events, please do not hesitate to contact Valorie Bader.
