Coby Turner, associate at Seyfarth Shaw LLP and senior editor of the California Peculiarities Employment Law Blog

Strange California employment laws always seem to be in the news. Despite their peculiarity, the laws emerging from the Golden State often set trends that eventually go nationwide. For example, in 2003, it passed local minimum wages and in 2006 it passed the first sick leave law in nation— just to name a couple. How can organizations be mindful about what’s new in California and discern whether it will impact their organization?

In this episode of HR Break Room, Coby Turner joins Caleb and Braeden to discuss:

  • why California laws have historically set nationwide trends in employment law
  • the consequences of being unprepared for the changes emerging from the Golden State
  • the California laws currently gaining traction on the national stage
