A new California law which went into effect on January 1st, 2017 adds a new section (Section 925) to the California Labor Code and it restricts some employer rights. Employers are now no longer able to require out-of-state adjudication or arbitration in employment contracts. This applies to the contracts of all employees who reside primarily within the state of California. Employers with questions about the effects of this new law should consult with an experienced San Jose business law attorney to ensure that their firm is always in full compliance.
Last month brought two new important changes coming to the California Equal Pay Act. As with all employment law regulations, companies operating within the state must ensure that their firm is in full compliance with this law. This means understanding and conforming to the new aspects of the law. Further, it is critically important that your company has good relations with its workers and that you have well-drafted employment contracts that will protect you from liability. If you have any questions or concerns about how California's employment law changes will impact your company, please contact our experienced San Jose business law attorneys today to discuss your case.
