On Wednesday, October 5, 2016, the WPI gave a one-hour review of the year’s major California employment laws affecting private sector employers. Major new laws include:

  • Increasing and indexing the state minimum wage (including for many agricultural workers)
  • Expanded paid sick leave requirements
  • Expanded equal pay requirements
  • Smoking in the workplace
  • Those new laws affecting only some California employers, or those only in certain cities or counties

WPI Co-Chair Ilyse Schuman interviewed Littler attorneys Chris Cobey and Cooper Spinelli, who have extensive California legislation experience including on these and other new laws, related political developments, and anticipated legislative action in 2017 in the Golden State.
