Dear Section Member,
I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce myself to you here (in addition to doing so in my column in this month’s Labor and Employment Law Review—which should hit your mailbox shortly!). I’m Ramit Mizrahi of Mizrahi Law in Pasadena. In my practice, I represent employees exclusively, focusing on discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination cases. (You can learn more about me on my website.) This is my sixth year on the Section’s Executive Committee, and it is my honor to serve as Chair. I am proud of the work that we do, and invite you to enjoy all that our Section has to offer, including our Labor and Employment Law Review (six issues per year), frequent webinars, trainings for new lawyers (New Lawyers Conference in the Bay Area and Los Angeles in February 2019), Public Sector Conference (April 12, 2019 in Sacramento), Wage and Hour Conference (July 18, 2019 in Los Angeles), Annual Conference (July 19, 2019 in Los Angeles), and an Advanced Mediation Conference (November 2019 in Los Angeles).
I invite you to reach out to me if you have suggestions for how to better serve our members or are interested in getting more involved in the Section.
The National Labor Relations Board has proposed a rule that “an employer may be considered a joint employer of a separate employer’s employees only if the two employers share or codetermine the employees’ essential terms and conditions of employment, such as hiring, firing, discipline, supervision, and direction.” The comment period ends December 13, 2018.

CLA’S Labor & Employment Section offers a great annual opportunity for your firm or business to sponsor our Section’s three major conferences in 2019 (our Public Sector Conference, Advanced Wage and Hour Conference, and Annual Meeting). Sponsors make it possible for us to keep attendance costs competitive so that our conferences are accessible to section members. This investment is a key to our success.
The benefits of being an Annual Sponsor include recognition in the Section’s Labor & Employment Law Review (which is sent to our 8,000+ members), your logo on conference banners and conference materials, recognition at our conferences, and depending on your level of membership, can also include free attendance and a display table at our conference(s). You get this all done at one time with one easy payment. If you would like more information or to sign up now to become at sponsor, go to our Sponsorship Opportunities website page.
Please contact the Labor & Employment Section, at LaborLaw@CAlawyers.org or (415) 795-7107 if you have any questions or wish to register by phone.
We thank our 2018 sponsors:
