Employment law is constantly changing and evolving. Practically all California businesses, no matter how small, must comply with an ever-increasing number of employment laws and regulations. These run the gamut from wage-and-hour laws, to family-and-medical leave and anti-discrimination statutes. Failure to comply with these laws may result in expensive lawsuits, fines and penalties.
