Orrick is proud to host the 2019 New Employment Lawyers Conference on behalf of the California Lawyers Association. Senior Employment Associate Alexandra Stathopoulos will speak as a management-side panelist on Wage and Hour Basics.

Given the voluminous number of employment laws that are applicable to California employers, representing clients or working as an employment practitioner can be extremely challenging. In this conference, management and employee-side attorneys will cover the fundamentals of a variety of employment laws, including: discrimination, harassment, leaves of absences, wage and hour as well as employment agreements and alternative ways of resolving employment disputes.
