If both the Supervisors and HR don’t administer an employer’s accountabilities in the correct manner what could have been solved as a mere miscommunication, can quickly turn into a costly lawsuit.

It is not just compliance risk management that is important. Just as important is that Supervisors need to know how to hire, coach, delegate, train and develop employees. Hiring is the most important activity of both HR and Supervisors. Coaching and delegation are as close to being “superpowers” as Supervisors ever will have. Supervisors need to know how to deal with everyday squabbles, as well as bigger problems such as resistance to change. Because when Supervisors effectively handle employees’ problems it is not just a risk management strategy it’s also a powerful employee retention tool.

Attend this seminar to get comprehensive knowledge on California compliance employment problems, discrimination and harassment, leave in CA (CFRA, FMLA, pregnancy leave), and different acts like Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL), California Family Rights Act (CFRA), Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), California New Parent Leave Act. It will also cover hiring best practices and compliance, performance reviews, performance plans, interventions and discipline, CA safety and CA workers compensation.

Seminar Fee Includes:
AM-PM Tea/Coffee
Seminar Material
USB with seminar presentation
Hard copy of presentation
Attendance Certificate
$100 Gift Cert for next seminar

    Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium

    Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium

    Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.



    Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.

    San Diego Zoo Safari Park

    San Diego Zoo Safari Park

    The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.

    Coronado Island

    Coronado Island

    Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.

    Balboa Park

    Balboa Park

    Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
