How to Avoid Litigation over Technical Violations of the Labor Code
Roger M. Mason Esq. and Rachael E. Brown Esq.
In California, employment law is constantly changing and employers must be ready.
• Are you providing proper meal and rest breaks?
• Do you allow your employees to perform “off the clock” work?
• Do you comply with the rules for overtime pay?
• Is there a pay gender gap in your company?
• Do you have a formal policy for designating “exempt” employees?
• Are you handling paid leaves of absence and sick leave correctly?
• Do you engage in the interactive process?
