Description Recording of live event on May 18, 2017Webinar Description California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits discrimination and harassment based on protected classes. Regulations that took effect last year clarified employer obligations and emphasize the affirmative duty to take reasonable steps to prevent and promptly correct harassing, discriminatory and retaliatory conduct in the workplace. Although most workplace discrimination lawsuits end in settlements, these settled cases cost significant money to resolve and open the door for similar claims by other employees. Join CalChamber’s employment law experts as they review California’s “protected classes” and provide steps to avoid unlawful discrimination. Topics include: Discrimination in the workplace defined “Protected classes” under California and federal law, including pregnancy and other disabilities Role of reasonable accommodations Protections for transgender employees plus proposed regulations anticipated to take effect in July Tips for properly addressing and investigating a discrimination claim Best practices when hiring, evaluating performance or taking disciplinary actions Learn what you can do now to treat employees fairly and help protect your business from liability.Product Features Presented by top CalChamber employment law experts Ideal for HR professionals, office managers, business owners or anyone responsible for hiring and staffing Mobile-optimized for viewing on tablets and smartphones Downloadable webinar slides and a recording of the live 5/18/17 event A recorded webinar is good for as long as the content is valid and there are no legal changes to it.
