New California Employment Law Changes for 2018!

Here are a just a few changes going into effect 1/1/2018 that you will need to be aware of (we can assist with updating your organization on all of these):

  1. A.B. 168: Salary history inquiries. Employers will no longer be able to ask job applicants about their current or prior earnings. Employers will also have to provide the pay scale for a position upon an applicant's request. This affects your policies and application forms.
  2. A.B. 450: Immigration enforcement. Employers will have to demand warrants and subpoenas from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents before any enforcement activities and will have to provide certain notices to employees and their union representatives. This affects your policies and notices.
  3. A.B. 1008: Ban the box. Employers with at least five employeeswon't be allowed to consider a job applicant's criminal history until a conditional employment offer is made. If the employer decides to deny employment based on an applicant's criminal history, the employer must follow certain steps before making a final decision. Affects policies, application and background forms.
  4. S.B. 63: New parent leave. Small businesses with 20-49 employees will have to provide 12 weeks of job-protected baby bonding leave within the first year following a child's birth, adoption or foster care placement. This affects your policies and notice forms.
  5. S.B. 396: Gender identity and sexual orientation harassment training. Sexual harassment training is already required for employers with 50 or more employees. That will soon need to include training on gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation harassment. Employers will also need to post a new DFEH transgender rights notice in the workplace. This new law affects your policies, notices, and current AB1825 training materials.
