New Law for Employers Requiring Compliance By July 1, 2017

It’s time to provide written notice… about victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking staff starting this coming summer.

While we handle and advise employers on many aspects of running their companies, this is an alert that every California employer with more than 25 employees needs to be made aware of as it requires compliance by July 1, 2017.

On September 14, 2016, California State Governor Jerry Brown approved AB 2337. This is a bill requiring employers to inform employees about workplace protections for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking in writing. The bill, which is codified in California Labor Code § 230.1, requires employers with twenty five or more employees to notify each employee of these rights both upon hire and at any time upon the employee’s request. The Labor Commissioner must develop a form for this purpose no later than July 1, 2017, which is when employers are expected to start complying with the new law.
