Promoting a better legal climate for California employers
California is at the leading edge in employment law and frequently sets the pace in defining laws that eventually sweep across the nation. This unique environment makes California employment law especially dynamic and challenging.
The California Employment Law Council (CELC) is a non-profit consortium of companies who work together to create a better legal climate for California employers. Since 1983, the CELC has played a key role in shaping our state’s employment law through:
- Lobbying — supporting legislative activity to address the needs of employers
- Amicus briefs — taking proactive positions on significant employment law cases
- Education — keeping members informed about the latest issues and trends
CELC members are among the largest and most significant employers in California. We take a moderate, pragmatic approach to employment law that reflects the core values of our diverse membership.
