FOUNDATIONS OF FEHA: Learning the Basics of California’s Core Employment Statute (WEBINAR)
In this online webinar you will learn about how the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) constitutes the basis for California litigation arising from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace. From its inception in 1959 as part of the Government Code, FEHA has been a landmark for employment-based regulations throughout the U.S. FEHA causes of action remain heavily litigated in California courtrooms.
This class, which refreshes a previous FEHA class in 2018 (“May the FEHA Be With You”) will review the foundations of FEHA and its ramifications for employees and employers. We’ll highlight legislative changes to FEHA in the last two years and how the courts are still revising and modifying their interpretations of FEHA’s provisions. We’ll also examine how FEHA stays relevant in the emerging “gig economy,” in which independent contractors are a growing proportion of the labor force.
