The 2017 edition of Employment Law Yearbook covers the most important issues facing today’s employers and employment law practitioners. In this tight employment market and amid the rapidly changing global economy, it is imperative that employers and employment law practitioners understand the legal implications of a wide range of workplace actions. Authored by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP’s Employment Law Practice Group, a nationally recognized leader in this field, Employment Law Yearbook 2017 substantially revises the 2016 edition and provides a review of current developments in the law, including case decisions, statutes, and other events of interest to employers in the past year, as well as practical steps employers can take to minimize their risks and comply with the law.
Revised annually, Employment Law Yearbook 2017 is an essential reference for in-house and outside corporate attorneys and human resource professionals, as well as attorneys representing plaintiffs and defendants in employment-related litigation.
Tim Long leads a vibrant employment law practice representing clients throughout the state and beyond from his offices in Los Angeles and Sacramento. For the last two years, The Daily Journal has selected Tim as one of the top labor and employment lawyers in California.
Tim has developed a national reputation litigating complex employment matters. Tim has acted as lead counsel in numerous class, collective and representative actions and advised on dozens more.
Mr. Long is one of the few lawyers who has tried to verdict an employment class action, obtaining a complete defense verdict on behalf of a major retailer. He went on to protect the verdict on appeal. Last year Tim argued to the California Supreme Court, achieving a victory for another retail client. He also made it to the U.S. Supreme Court in a case involving independent contractors and the enforceability of arbitration agreements. That case settled on the eve of oral argument.
Tim is also the Editor of PLI’s Employment Law Yearbook, which is the most comprehensive, annual update on issues that are most relevant to employment law practitioners.
