California employers will soon need to adjust to a new reality as a number of new workplace restrictions have been passed by the state legislature and just signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. State lawmakers were quite active this year, with almost 2,500 bills introduced and over 1,000 making it to the Governor’s desk. In light of the ever-evolving legal landscape, employers need to stay up-to-date on current legislation or face potential litigation. To guide employers through these upcoming changes, Fisher Phillips 2018 Legislative and Case Law Update will provide a wealth of information on a variety of topics affecting businesses in 2018 and beyond.
