2015 Legislative Update

February 2, 2015 by

State Capital

In this year’s legislative session, as has become a tradition for Governor Brown, a number of labor and employment related statutes were signed (and others vetoed).  Some of these new laws are groundbreaking and provide important rights and benefits for employees.  Others clarify or supplement existing law and protections.  These new laws impact sick leave and other leave benefits, protection for immigrant workers, increased enforcement of workplace safety laws, expanded coverage for non-discrimination laws, prevailing wage enforcement and coverage; and wage and hour enforcement.  We have summarized the new state laws by category.

Unless otherwise noted, all of these laws are effective January 1, 2015.  As always, do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
