MAJOR EMPLOYMENT LAWS YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF

The California Peculiarities Employment Law Blog at Seyforth and Shaw have a good wrap-up of some of the major new laws impacting employers signed into law by Governor Brown.  If you hire employees or contractors, you should be aware of your new obligations under the law. The blog covers the following issue:

* Salary Inquiry Ban.

* Ban-the-Box: Prior Conviction History of Applicants.

* New Parent Leave Act and Parental Leave DFEH Mediation Pilot Program.

* Retaliation: Expanding the Labor Commissioner’s Authority.

* Immigration: Worksite Enforcement Actions.

* Harassment Training: Gender Identity, Gender Expression, and Sexual Orientation.

The final night for the Governor to sign or veto bills on his desk was two weeks ago.  In 2017 the Legislature sent 977 bills to his desk.  He signed 88% of the bills (859) and vetoed 12% (118).
