This past year, 1,217 bills made it to Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. and 1,016 of them were signed into law. Dozens of new laws will affect employers in 2019, but some won’t have an impact until 2020 or 2021.
Many of the new laws stem from the #MeToo movement and strengthen harassment protections, while others clear up ambiguities in laws that took effect in 2018, such as the ban on asking about an applicant’s salary history.
“With new state laws taking effect on January 1, 2019, California businesses need to take note and ensure they are in compliance,” says Erika Frank, CalChamber executive vice president, legal affairs and general counsel.
