California Employment Law Letter provides a three-part subscription package to deliver the practical, hands-on advice you need to manage your California workforce safely and in compliance with California and federal laws. That's because the newsletter's editors are California attorneys who defend and counsel employers statewide.

Each issue also keeps you on top of California court and U.S. Supreme Court decisions that affect your workforce, all reported with California's local laws and policies in mind. You get the information you need to stay in business — and out of the courtroom.

Your complete subscription package includes:

  1. California Employment Law Letter — 12 monthly issues mailed to you and also available online. (Digital-only versions are available with an HRLaws subscription) You also receive email notifications once a month and periodic News Alert by email as needed.
  2. Access to Subscribers-Only Area — You'll find a wealth of helpful information, available to subscribers only, at no additional cost:

    • Employment Law Letter articles from states you subscribe to
    • Sample policies
    • Your state's statutes and regulations affecting employers
    • Federal statutes and regulations on employment and labor law
    • Results from monthly surveys of HR professionals
    • Hot Topics
    • Employers Forum online community for HR professionals, employers, and their counsel.
  3. Mastering HR Reports — In-depth reports covering topics that are too complex to be fully covered in your monthly newsletter. Some 15-20 Mastering HR Reports are available in the Subscribers-Only area, and we update them regularly so you will always have the most up-to-date information.
