Each session will include 50+ minutes of presentation and material, along with 15+ minutes of live Q & A where you can have all your questions answered by the “guru” of lien law, attorney Carlos Kaslow. Your price includes all three sessions, the live Q & A, and printed material. (Once we open our online education, you will also have limited access to this session online as a follow-up).

    Carlos Kaslow

    Attorney specializing in the

    self storage industry & California

    lien law expert 

    A self storage lien can be beneficial in obtaining delinquent fund or opening up new rental space. However, if not processed properly, it can cost time and money. Don’t be caught with a wrongful sale. California has very specific lien laws that need to be followed to protect the Operator.

    Hear self storage attorney Carlos Kaslow, an expert on California self storage lien law, explain step-by-step what you must do to properly conduct a lien sale. Avoid legal mistakes and blunders that can cause problems down the road. Carlos will also discuss the updates and what lien changes CSSA is working on for the future.

      In 2020, the California legislature and governor had a busy year responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and implementing new employment laws for 2021. The new bills touch almost every facet of employment - including leave laws, wage & hour, workers' compensation, and industry-specific laws. CEA has meticulously tracked these new requirements and will provide you with best practices for your company.

      Join us to learn about:

      • California Family Rights Act (CFRA): now impacts all employers with 5 or more employees
      • Site Safety and COVID-19 Reporting Requirements
      • Workers' Compensation Presumption: related to COVID-19 positive cases and how employers should respond
      • New exemptions to the ABC Test for independent contractors
      • Expanded Crime Victims' Leave
      • Sick Leave Designation requirements
      • Pay Data Reporting requirements for large businesses
