California is the world's sixth-largest economy, so odds are that your organization has or will soon have a California employee—one who needs to exit the organization, either voluntarily or without choice. This presentation demystifies California employment law by identifying the essential legal rules that apply to California terminations. Take a deep dive into payroll and wage and hour rules related to termination, including final pay rules and whether terminated employees have earned bonuses, commissions or other post-termination pay. Related topics covered include protecting confidential information, prohibiting unfair competition, and making California termination decisions “litigation-proof.” To defend employee claims in litigation, you’ll get tips on how best to document California personnel actions.
