New Laws in 2019

A number of employment-related bills that will impact California employers this year were signed into law in 2018 by then Governor Jerry Brown. The new laws cover issues such as paid time off, sexual harassment, criminal histories of job applicants, and lactation accommodations. A number of other employment-related bills were introduced, but either failed to pass the legislature or were vetoed by Governor Brown. Information on these bills, as well as the new laws, can be found in the article “Hello, 2019: With the New Year Comes New Laws” in the Authority’s December 2018 newsletter.
