California Employment Law Update: How New Laws Are Affecting the Nation

Stay ahead of new California laws and learn how they could impact your business.

People outside California often pass off its legal developments as wacky and outside the norm. In fact, laws developed in California often make their way into other states and even into federal law. To properly appreciate the impact that California laws can have on the rest of the nation, it is important to understand the characteristics of the state that give it greater influence on other states, and to look at the history of some legal developments in California that are now accepted in every jurisdiction. This information will look at the impact of California's early adoption of laws on comparative fault, medical malpractice reform, and the obligation of mental health professionals to alert potential victims to dangers posed by their patients. Review four current legal developments that may be forerunners of things to come in the rest of the country.
