Lawsuit Prevention in California

When it comes to filing lawsuits, the end of the year calendar is when it’s most busy. Because of the continuous COVID-19 pandemic, devastating impact has made its way to many sectors of the economy. As a result, more lawsuits are in action. Now more than ever, employers should be ready, protected and vigilant. Here is some advice regarding lawsuit prevention practices.

  1. Update Policies and Practices: Updating your policies and practice should be done once a year (at least every two). Make sure that policies, posting, and handbooks are compliant to 2021. In the state of California, things change and laws evolve.
  2. Layoff and Termination Practices: When terminations or layoffs are made, make sure proper documentation of rationale is done once this decision is made. Documentation should answer the question: “why was this decision made?” Any history regarding issues with this employee should also be documented and used as reference.
  3. Thoughtful with Information: Make sure your HR department is careful about distributing information. Including important and relevant information (such as arbitration agreements or determination documents) is paramount. It is important to remember that time records with pay records are not required by statute. Make sure to keep copies of whatever you send.
