'First Thursday' - Labor Law Seminar Series
Name: 'First Thursday' - Labor Law Seminar Series
Date: September 6, 2018
Time: 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM PDT
Topic: How Independent are your Contractors?
What Has Changed?
With the stroke of its pen, the California Supreme Court has apparently added “independent contractors” to this exclusive list.
On April 30, 2018, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that significantly alters what it takes for a worker to be properly classified as an independent contractor under California law. The practical effect of this is profound!
This ongoing seminar series is being conducted by veteran Petaluma labor & employment attorney, Jay Putnam. Putnam, has advised employers exclusively, in labor matters for over 36 years. He hopes to provide local business owners and managers with a solid, working understanding of California labor law, as a means of helping them avoid the often crippling cost and disruption caused by lawsuits resulting from a misunderstanding of applicable legal requirements.
Members are encouraged to bring their questions. Putnam says he intends to conduct the seminars as "informal, working sessions, where people can bring their lunch and their questions and leave each month with important information that will immediately improve their business operations.
