City of West Covina to Host Free Business Workshop on Employment Laws
WEST COVINA, CA –The City of West Covina and SCORE are hosting a “Staying Current with Employment Laws” workshop on Thursday, June 28, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the West Covina Council Chambers (located at 1444 W. Garvey Avenue South, West Covina, CA 91790). Hazel U. Poei will share with attendees about the latest legal developments and learn ways to avoid liability.
Ms. Hazel U. Poei is a Principal in the Los Angeles office of Jackson Lewis P.C. law firm. For over 15 years, she has practiced exclusively in the field of employment law. Her practice is focused on single-plaintiff, multi-plaintiff, and class action employment litigation in state and federal courts in areas such as discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination of employment, failure to pay wages, and more. Ms. Poei has also handled arbitration proceedings and matters before administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, and the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement.
Employers with operations in California - from established corporations to emerging and startup companies - face unique challenges. California law often sets the national trend with employment law developments predating changes across the country. With Ms. Poei’s legal expertise, she will provide updates on employment laws to help businesses develop HR policies that protect them from liability. This workshop is aimed at helping participants learn about the latest legal developments and explore ways they may avoid liability by developing preventive strategies.
