Background Checks and Subsequent Arrests
Public schools are among the few employers who can perform criminal background checks, but the rules around using this information and how to handle subsequent arrest notices is complicated.  Can school districts really decline anyone who has a conviction on their record?  What is the best practice for when a subsequent arrest notice comes in?  What are “mandatory” offenses?  This presentation will cover these questions and more.

Deciphering The Education Code: Translating Laws Into Sound Personnel Practices For Certificated And Classified Employees
It has been noted that “entry into the Education Code is painful” and “large parts of the Education Code are not meant to be understood” – and this was the California Court of Appeal speaking. This session will break down the otherwise indecipherable provisions of the Education Code as it relates to the fundamental rules of certificated and classified employment. Targeted for both emerging and advanced HR practitioners, we will cover fundamentals such as how the Education Code establishes the certificated and classified services, as well as advanced scenarios, such as the subtle yet significant distinctions in how the Education Code treats topics such as employee classifications, leaves of absences, seniority, permanent status, rehire rights, layoffs, and bumping with respect to certificated and classified personnel, as well as the interplay between Education Code rights and the collective bargaining process.
