Employers will need to be aware of significant changes.

As we head toward the new year, don’t forget there are several new laws affecting California employers in 2017.

CalChamber’s employment law counsel analyzed the significant pieces of legislation that Governor Brown signed into law and prepared a white paper summarizing their effects on California employers.

Learn about new laws on:

  • Wage and hour, including minimum wage and overtime;
  • Expanded discrimination and retaliation protections, including significant amendments to the Fair Pay Act;
  • Leaves of absence, including new hire notification requirements;
  • Background checks;
  • Workers’ compensation; and
  • Much more.
