Annual California Legislative Recap

Another year has passed in the California Legislature, with new laws and amendments affecting California employers.  Among the more significant changes, bills prompted by the #MeToo movement, including the new requirement that corporate boards of directors include women, have been passed.  Other changes include amendments to the Fair Pay Act regarding potential employees’ salary history and amendments potentially increasing the number of international commercial disputes brought in California. On the federal side, we are seeing regulatory changes as Trump appointees reverse Obama-era policies and regulations. This Commentary helps companies navigate these changes, all of which are effective January 1, 2019, unless otherwise noted.
