The California Governor has through October 11, 2015, to sign or veto the last of the Legislature’s bills passed in the 2015 regular session. In 2015, close to 100 bills were introduced that would directly impact the employment practices of California private sector employers. Although the Legislature has adjourned for this year’s session, there are more than 600 bills on the Governor’s desk awaiting his signature or veto.

Topics include:

  • The paid sick leave “clean up” legislation effective in July
  • A new statewide minimum wage – plus all those local minimum wages – and what minimum wage may be on the November 2016 ballot
  • New protected categories under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)
  • An expansion of the application of the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) to smaller employers
  • Prohibition on employers asking candidates about candidates’ salary history
  • Expanded bases for bringing equal pay act claims under California law – plus additional protections for employees who cooperate in such cases
  • A change to the Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) that could actual benefit some employers
