ABOUT THE EVENT

Conn Maciel Carey LLP's Inaugural Cal/OSHA and California Employment Law Summit is an in-person program conducted by the California-based attorneys in CMC's national OSHA • Workplace Safety and Labor • Employment Practice Groups, to update California employers on important developments involving workplace safety and health and employment law issues in California.

Learn How to Navigate California Requirements

 

California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) is the most aggressive and enforcement-heavy approved State OSH Program in the nation, and as a result, California employers face a host of requirements that other employers around the country do not. And with a packed rulemaking agenda on the horizon, most employers stand to be impacted by at least one new standard.

 

In addition, California continues to experience regular changes in the employment law landscape through new legislation and decisions from the California courts. California employers always have something new to learn as the legislative session comes to a close in the fall and we know with certainty which new laws will take effect in 2024.

 

Our Cal/OSHA and California Employment Law Summit will cover what employers can expect in the coming months from the latest legislative and rulemaking updates to changes in enforcement priorities, and best practices for compliance.

Two Dates and Locations to Choose From

Registrants have the opportunity to join the program in Northern California on October 16th, or in Southern California on October 17th. Each day will consist of the program outlined in the agenda below including networking, panelist sessions, and open forums to collaborate with the CMC team and your fellow attendees.

Continental breakfast, lunch, and program materials will be included with registration at both locations.

This program has been approved for 4.50 Conference recertification credit hours through the HR Certification Institute (HRCI) and the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM).

We will also submit the program for California CLE credits.

Cal/OSHA Legislative, Regulatory and Enforcement Update

Join our Cal/OSHA team for a review of new California occupational safety and health laws and regulations, a look into the agency’s enforcement priorities, and further insight offered by recent Appeals Board decisions.

The Crossroads of Occupational Safety and Health and Employment Law: Workplace Violence Prevention

With the Governor's likely signature of Senate Bill 553 (Workplace Violence Prevention) on the horizon and other anticipated rulemaking and Cal/OSHA regulations addressing workplace violence protections, both employment and safety and health teams need to think through the implications of the anticipated compliance requirements.

 

Join us for a deep dive into the new requirements and an overview of the ways that various employment laws can be triggered while implementing a workplace violence prevention program. We will discuss issues including reasonable accommodations, claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation, privacy rights, background checks, and more.
