On the Horizon: New Employment and Labor Laws Affecting California Employers in 2018


By Thakur Law Firm, APC.

With the New Year upon us, we brace for the perennial tidal wave of California employment law changes of statutory tweaks, regulatory guidelines, and myriad new judicial decisions that will impact our clients.  We must make sure to advise our employer clients of any changes to daily operations and policies, as well as stay abreast of the ever-changing rights of employees in the workplace. The variety of new laws and rules can easily overwhelm employers and, if they are not in compliance, even the most well-advised employers might be ambushed by penalties for policies and practices that might well have been permissible just last year. Several new pieces of legislation deal specifically with the job applications and employers’ hiring processes and restrict what information employers can consider in making hiring decisions and what questions they may ask job applicants. As a result, employers must stay vigilant of changes in the law and constantly revise their hiring documents and processes, as well as training procedures for new and existing staff. Most employers want clear, cut-and-dry advice, so they may easily maintain their compliance. To that end, below is a summary of key new laws that the California legislature has enacted, which take effect on January 1, 2018, along with the best practices to be ready and ensure compliance.
