WHAT’S NEW FOR 2016?

Come and learn what you need to know to stay in compliance and out of court in 2016!

Employers must stay current on the new employment law developments which were implemented in 2015 and be ready for the changes that will take effect in 2016. The updated laws can impact wage and hour requirements, proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), equal pay, leave of absence rights, termination rights, and recordkeeping obligations. Preparation and knowledge are the keys to avoid lawsuits.
Please join the Contra Costa County EAC for a presentation by Marc L. Jacuzzi, Esq., who will discuss these important new developments.

Speaker: Marc Jacuzzi

Mr. Jacuzzi has broad experience in employment law matters. He has represented numerous employers in civil rights actions, trade secret misappropriation claims, wage claims, wrongful termination claims, unfair business practices claims (Section 17200), non-competition claims (Section 16600), contract disputes, and various tort claims filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), and various other state agencies in both state and federal courts.
Mr. Jacuzzi’s practice also involves employment law counseling. He regularly advises clients in all aspects of the employer/employee relationship including hiring and termination, wage and hour requirements, employee classification, civil rights/discrimination issues, commission plans, employment contracts, employee handbooks and policies, confidential information agreements, reductions in force, leaves of absence, employment audits, merger and acquisition employment issues, violence in the workplace, and international employment law topics.

How to prepare and respond when auditors come knocking on your door.

Speaker: Phyllis Cheng

Before joining DLA Piper, Phyllis was the Director of the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the largest state civil rights agency

in the United States. Originally appointed to head the DFEH by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, then retained by Governor Jerry Brown, Phyllis is well respected by both sides of the political aisle and enjoys a reputation as a hard-working public official who improved the DFEH during a budget crisis by implementing innovative business concepts.
 At DLA Piper, she focuses her practice on  employment policy and legislative and business development issues that concern companies in California. During her nearly seven-year tenure at DFEH, the agency took in 140,000 complaints, prosecuted between 400-500 cases, including several class complaints, and garnered wins and settlements of about $100 million plus affirmative relief. Meanwhile, during a budget crisis, rather than laying off employees, she closed down five physical facilities to reduce rents, relocated staff and partnered with seven law schools and colleges on campus, staffed by a combination of public employees and civil rights fellows, thus growing the capacity of the agency while drastically reducing costs.
