To ensure businesses are prepared for all the new state rules and regulations, the SCV Chamber will host the only local, fully comprehensive employment law update to discuss best business practices and requirements.
SANTA CLARITA, November 29, 2022 – The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce today announced its 2023 Employment Law Update, scheduled for Tuesday, January 24, 2023, at the SCV Senior Center at Bella Vida.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Brian Koegle for the only comprehensive employment law update for the Santa Clarita Valley,” said Dr. Chris Raigosa, Chair of the SCV Chamber Board. “Each year, the Chamber provides this program for our community to familiarize themselves with upcoming law changes to ensure they avoid pitfalls that could impact their business.”
Doing business in California is a challenge, but understanding the rules and regulations, as well as the best practices to comply with those requirements, is an absolute necessity for any business leader to make fully informed decisions.
“It’s always a pleasure to partner with the SCV Chamber of Commerce for this event. As we enter a post-pandemic phase, we see a return of laws being enacted that are not just COVID-related,” said Brian Koegle, Partner at Greenspoon Marder LLP. “It’s never easy navigating through the maze of regulations and cases applicable to California businesses. Compliance fatigue is a real thing for many business owners!”
