5 New HR Compliance Hurdles in California
Navigating the HR compliance maze in California can be complicated, even for the most seasoned HR pro. With many new complex regulations coming into play and changes to existing regulations happening regularly, staying in compliance seems to be more difficult—and perhaps more costly—than ever before. In 2018 alone, employers in California have been faced with new legal requirements including The Fair Chance Act, which extends “ban the box” initiatives to most private employers, the Salary Privacy law that prohibit employers from asking an applicant’s salary history, the Parent Leave Act that extends parental leave rights to employees in organization with 20-49 employees, expanded sexual harassment training requirements, and the state’s Immigrant Worker Protection Act.
