BayBio Lunch & Learn: Employment Law Pitfalls
Sooner or later, every growing company starts to hire employees. Sometimes it’s already happened before you know it because the contractor you thought you hired as an independent is actually considered a full time employee in eyes of CA employment law. While many of these laws apply to every employer, regardless of size, some can kick in after hiring as few as five people and can carry robust penalties if they’re violated. Has your company developed a social media policy? If so, do your employees understand it?
As part of this informal roundtable discussion, San Francisco Employment Practice Partner Michael Kelly will discuss some of the leading employment law problems emerging life science companies face covering the employee life cycle from hiring through discharge.
Topics will include:
- Avoiding substantial penalties from misclassifying employees as independent contractors
- Knowing what you can and cannot ask candidates
- Having the right offer letters, proprietary rights agreements and handbook
- Understanding how far you can go (or must go) in regulating employee use of social media
- Identifying warning signs of potential harassment or discrimination issues
- Providing leaves and accommodating disabilities
- Managing problem performers
Lunch will be provided.
