HR Law Talk was created to provide employers with all-encompassing legal guidance in today’s quickly-evolving regulatory landscape. Originally started as the Labor Talk blog, focusing solely on labor and employment laws affecting employers, the blog was relaunched in February 2017 as HR Law Talk with expanded coverage from the firm’s Employee Benefits practice group to complement ongoing updates from the Labor & Employment team. The blog’s coverage will include regular coverage on legislative updates, significant rulings and major trends in labor law, as well as major developments in employee benefits and California-based labor law.
