On July 1, 2015, California's new Paid Sick Leave Law (AB 1522) will go into effect. With very few exceptions, this new law will apply to every employee at your agency, including temporary, seasonal, and extra help employees. This webinar will cover the basic requirements of AB 1522 – including the Paid Sick Leave Law's use, accrual, carryover, and notice requirements. In addition, we'll outline the "gray" areas that exist and provide our best understanding of how to apply and implement the law so your agency will be prepared when the law goes into effect.

motion – procedurally and substantively – from receipt of the motion to opposing it, and handling the in-camera hearing. We will cover strategies for responding to a Pitchess
motion in the context of an appellant's disparate treatment claims.
