LAVA Announces new partnership with Littler Mendelsen P.C.

LAVA is pleased to welcome Littler Mendelsen as a new partner and Global LAVA Sponsor. Also as an added benefit, Littler is offering our LAVA Members a special benefit with free access to their Littler X-celerator.


When an entrepreneur turns an idea into a viable business, a major step in starting or growing the business is building its workforce. The web-based Littler X-celeratorprovides California companies with tools to help them become and remain compliant with state and federal laws when hiring employees and maintaining their workforce. Littler X-celeratorincludes practical information provided by knowledgeable labor and employment attorneys to guide users through when—and how—to utilize the many templates and resources available on the site.
