Launey discusses essential new legislation in effect January 2013, that will
affect how employers do business in California, including:

  • protections for religious dress and grooming practices and breastfeeding under FEHA;  
  • restrictions on the use of social media passwords; 
  • new requirements for employee inspection of personnel records;
  • human trafficking posting requirements;     
  • defining injury for purposes of a violation of itemized wage statement requirements;       
  • imposing additional wage statement and wage theft notice requirements on temporary services employers;   
  • reorganization of the Department of Fair Employment and Housing; and             
  • much-needed reform to the workers’ compensation system and disability access lawsuits.

 

In addition, Dana Howells and Chelsea Spuck will review the recently-released amended FEHA pregnancy and disability regulations, including new definitions, examples and guidance on what they mean for employers.
