October 01, 2012

Throughout September, California Governor Jerry Brown signed hundreds of bills amending existing laws or enacting new laws. Thirteen of these new laws amend the wage and hour and other provisions of the California Labor Code, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, and other California laws relevant to employers. Although accomplished with little fanfare and publicity, these new laws significantly expand certain employee rights. Most of these new provisions take effect on January 1, 2013. Employers with operations in California should take note.
