CalChamber White Paper Recaps Key Employment Law Developments

California’s mandatory paid sick leave law is the story of the year. On July 1, employers had to start providing the benefit to employees. The Governor also signed “clean-up” amendments to the law that went into effect on July 13.

But paid sick leave isn’t the whole story. It’s already been a busy year with several noteworthy developments that demand employers’ attention.

The California Chamber of Commerce 2015 Midyear Employment Law Update white paper recaps noteworthy employment law developments, such as important court rulings on:

• discrimination and harassment cases;

• on-call employees;

• exempt/nonexempt classification;

• leaves of absence; and

• disability accommodation and telecommuting.

Also covered are:

• AB 60 driver licenses;

• amendments to California Family Rights Act regulations; and

• new heat illness regulations that took effect May 1.
