Webinar to Prep Employers for California’s New Workplace Violence Standard

California’s New Workplace Violence Standards

Since 2017, health care employers in California have been required to implement workplace violence safety rules — but beginning July 1, 2024, nearly all employers in California will be required to abide by a workplace violence standard.

The new standard — enacted by Senate Bill 553, which Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law on September 30, 2023 — has a significant list of requirements that employers must review and address before many of its provisions take effect next year, so to help employers prepare, CalChamber’s employment law experts are holding a live webinar on November 2, 2023.

In the “California’s New Workplace Violence Standards” webinar, CalChamber’s experts will cover what non-health care employers should know about California’s new workplace violence standard, including explaining the new law and discussing how to:

  • Create a written workplace violence prevention plan;
  • Train employees to identify and report workplace violence hazards;
  • Log workplace violence incidents;
  • File workplace violence restraining orders; and
  • Maintain records of compliance with SB 553.
