Two Job Killers in Assembly Labor and Employment Committee This Week

May 5 2015 - Workplace Policies - HRWatchdog

Two California Chamber of Commerce-opposed “job killer” bills will be considered by the Assembly Labor and Employment Committee on Wednesday.

  • AB 359 (Gonzalez; D-San Diego) would alter the employment relationship and increase litigation by requiring any successor grocery employer to retain employees of the former grocery employer for 90 days and continue to offer continued employment unless the employees’ performance during the 90-day period was unsatisfactory.
  • AB 465 (Hernández; D-West Covina) would significantly drive up litigation costs for all California employers and increase pressure on the judicial system by prohibiting mandatory employment arbitration agreements, which is likely pre-empted by the Federal Arbitration Act.
