JANUARY MEETING - The Seven Habits of Frequently Sued Employers

PRESENTER: Alden Parker

Tuesday, January 14, 2020
11:30a - 1:30p

Employers continue to face costly employment related litigation. This presentation will review the seven habits of frequently sued employers: (1) Misclassification of workers as independent contractors (especially in light of Dynamex), or as exempt from overtime; (2) Meal and rest breaks are not provided as required; (3) Failure to accommodate disabled employees and conduct the interactive process when required; (4) Leaves of absence (family and medical leave, pregnancy leave, sick time) are not provided when required; (5) Lack of oversight for payroll and HR software providers; (6) Outdated employee handbooks; (7) Termination of employees without proper assessment and documentation.

Alden Parker is the managing partner of Fisher Phillips Sacramento office. He represents and counsels employers in all aspects of labor and employment law, including employment discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation, and wage-hour class action lawsuits, as well as employment handbook and personnel policy preparation, and general preventive advice including hiring, discipline and termination practices. Alden has extensive experience defending employers in federal and state courts, as well as in investigations by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the DFEH, United States Department of Labor (DOL) and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
