Orange County CAA Chapter Presents "Got a Good Lawyer"?

The Orange County California Autobody Association Chapter will hold its first meeting of the new year on Tuesday, March 19, at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club, 12442 Tustin Ranch Road in Tustin, CA.

The presentation, "Got a Good Lawyer?," is targeted for shop managers and owners only as the meeting will discuss the risks shops face being sued by employees, Cal/OSHA or the labor department. Body shop managers and owners will receive free legal advise and answers to labor law questions, as well as learn about changes for 2013.

Featured speaker is Cory J. King, partner of the San Diego office of Fine, Boggs & Perkins, LLP. His employment law practice focuses on both the “prevention side” of employment claims, as well as litigating all types of employment matters.

The speaker will provide legal insight into the following areas of auto body shop practices, including:

1. Wage and hours laws and updates
2. Employee rights on overtime and meal time hours
3. Preparing auto repair shops for the employee free choice act
4. Sexual harassment
5. Slip and fall employee handbook

King represents employers in a wide range of industries, including financial institutions, high-tech companies, manufacturing companies, and construction companies, but has developed a special expertise in representing automobile dealerships, collision repair centers, and motorcycle dealerships. King’s experience in the industry as a salesperson and sales manager provides a unique and valuable dimension when representing automobile dealers. King also serves as labor and employment counsel for the California Autobody Association (CAA) and the California Motorcycle Dealers Association (CMDA). He also is active in the national Collision Industry Conference (CIC) and is currently serving his second term as the Chair of its Human Resource Committee.

Due to the nature of the topics and the legal advice being discussed at this meeting, only body shop managers and owners are invited to attend this meeting.
