The deadline for California’s Governor to sign, approve without signing, or veto bills on his desk was September 30, 2022. We have compiled a comprehensive list of the major new laws and obligations that employers in the Golden State should know. As always, it is wise to consult with counsel to ensure that workplace policies and practices are in compliance.

Employers should consider reviewing these new laws to determine whether they need to revise their policies and practices to ensure they are compliant and to make sure they are not caught off guard. These new laws go into effect on January 1, 2023, with the exception of SB 951 and AB 2188.
