About the Program

Workplaces across California are reopening but even as restrictions are lifted, the panoply of existing laws, rules and regulations remain complex and often confusing. Using a game show format, the presenters will discuss how California?s COVID related laws have and may continue to impact the ever changing workplace. We will ask for audience input as we discuss what employers and employees need to know now and where we may be heading as we return to a new “normal”.
