Labor Law Seminar

Labor Law and Payroll Tax Seminar

Labor Law and Payroll Tax Seminar

The California Employment Development Department (EDD) and the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE or Labor Commissioner) are hosting a free seminar regarding labor law issues, wage and hour requirements and payroll tax issues. The presentation will cover:

  • Record keeping requirements
  • Reporting requirements
  • Employer obligations
  • Payment requirements
  • Common wage and hour laws
  • Employer and employee rights and responsibilities
  • How to distinguish between an employee and an independent contractor

The presentation is being held on March 15, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Dublin Civic Center.

Although I am not presenting at this seminar, I’ve presented similar topics to various groups in the past, and it is an area that requires attention. Many new or smaller employers, and even some more established and larger employers, make small but costly mistakes. This presentation will help employers understand their obligations, and make corrections to avoid problems in the future.

I doubt the presentation will cover what to do if you’ve already made a mistake without increasing your liability, which is unfortunate. I always prefer to include possible resolutions to common labor law issues when an employer discovers a possible problem.
