As promised at our last Legal Update, the first half of 2015 saw the introduction of some significant changes to both the state and federal employment law landscapes. Employers must remain vigilant, as some of these regulations have yet to be finalized or are now being challenged in the courts. The outcome of these could have a substantial impact on your business.

Join us as our panel of experienced practitioners and agency officials walk through some of the most significant changes to long standing regulations that have materialized in many years.
