  • Workplace & Employment Law Update (WELU)

    For over 70 years, California companies have relied on Employers Group’s annual one-day Workplace & Employment Law Update (WELU). The information-packed event covers the issues, laws, and practices California businesses need to be aware of for the upcoming year.

    Unlike other employment law updates, Employers Group delivers its WELU before the new year begins so HR and business leaders have time to adequately prepare for changes in the law and compliance complexities. EG’s program also covers timely workplace issues that impact how companies do business. Please see agenda for more information.

    Visit the official WELU page to see this year’s agenda, learn more about our speakers, or register today!
