As workplace regulations spread among California cities, employers confront a tangled web of local rules – particularly those companies with operations in multiple locations. Addressing this compliance challenge with practical suggestions, Corinn Jackson with Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute (WPI) and Sacramento Shareholder Bruce Sarchet, also a member of the WPI team explore new regulations in Emeryville, San Jose, and San Francisco that mandate advance notice of work schedules and require offering additional work hours to part-time employees before hiring from the outside. Corinn and Bruce encourage employers to carefully evaluate whether the laws apply to their operations and, if so, provide training and guidance to supervisors and managers who will need to implement the requirements. Additionally, Bruce and Corinn note that ongoing monitoring of compliance will be critical, along with legal consultation.
