Once again, California enacted many new employment laws that will affect California employers’ day-to-day operations and policies in 2014.
Some of the new laws for 2014 make significant changes in key areas, such as a new minimum wage, new protections for immigrants and expanded leaves of absence. Other new laws make small changes to different parts of existing law or relate to specific industries, such as garment manufacturers or the car wash industry. Unless specified, all new legislation goes into effect on January 1, 2014. You can read our white paper here, which identifies some of the noteworthy new laws from the California Legislature.
