Sean Pon Quoted in Law360 Article on New California Law's Impact on Employers' Business Practices

October 7, 2014

Hinshaw Labor & Employment attorney Sean N. Pon was quoted in the article, "New Calif. Laws Push Employers To Retool Business Practices," published by Law360. The article discusses a law that extends liability to employers whose staffing agencies and third-party contractors violate labor laws, a law requiring employers to provide a minimum of three days of paid sick leave per year, and a law that bars forced waivers in the civil rights context with potential for expansion to employment discrimination claims.

Mr. Pon's comments focus on how one of the laws could have the practical effect of encouraging companies to keep employees in-house, where the employer has more control over the workers.
