California has always been one of the most challenging states in the country for employers. With a myriad of new laws and case developments, 2023 looks to be an even more complicated labyrinth for employment law compliance. During our annual Legal Update, Partners Maria Stearns and Brandon Sylvia of Rutan & Tucker, LLP will summarize new employment laws for 2023 and discuss significant cases from 2022 and their anticipated impact on employers.
