SACRAMENTO, Calif. — HR professionals from throughout California will voice their support for a workplace flexibility bill and a measure allowing employers in the state to give preference to veterans in hiring during an April 9 visit with state legislators and their staffs. The visit to the state Capitol is being held during the annual State Legislative & HR Conference of the California State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (CalSHRM).
WHAT: 2015 California State Legislative & HR Conference
WHEN: Thursday, April 9, and Friday, April 10, 2015
WHERE: Hyatt Regency Sacramento, 1209 L Street, Sacramento, Calif. 95814
WHO: CalSHRM Legislative Affairs Director Michael Kalt (partner, Wilson Turner Kosmo LLP of San Diego) will update HR professionals about pending California legislation that would affect the workplace at 8 a.m. April 9.
ADVOCACY: About 60 conference attendees will meet with legislators from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on April 9 to support Assembly Bill 1038, which would permit a nonexempt employee to request an alternative schedule of up to 10 hours a day within a 40-hour workweek. In addition, attendees will discuss opposition to Senate Bill 406, which would subject small employers to the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). The bill is opposed because it would add complexity and uncertainty for employers that navigate between CFRA and its federal counterpart, the Family Medical Leave Act.
VETERANS HIRING: During their visit to the Assembly, human resource professionals also will voice strong support for an effort to allow private employers to voluntarily provide a preference to veterans in hiring (AB 1383).
In a related conference session, retired Col. David W. Sutherland, U.S. Army, chairman of Easter Seals Dixon Center, and chief strategist, Easter Seals Military and Veterans Services, will lead a panel discussion about the hiring of military veterans and what actions California employers can take to help increase their employment rate. The session is at 11:30 a.m. on April 10.
CONFERENCE DETAILS: The conference, which is open to media coverage, offers experts on employment law. Among the presentations is “The Impact of Immigration Reform on California Employers” at 3:15 p.m. on April 9.
