Employers in the state of California must comply with over 20 new employment law updates taking effect in 2014, including eight significant new laws effective January 1st, 2014. These new laws impose specific mandates and prohibitions on employers relating to discrimination against military veterans, immigration-related retaliation, paid family leave, and the rights of crime victims in the workplace.

♦ Amendments to the Fair Employment & Housing Act (AB 556 and SB 292): AB 556 expands state law to prohibit employment discrimination against employees who are active or inactive military service members or veterans of the military. SB 292 eliminates “sexual desire” as required component of a harassment claim. Both laws are effective January 1st, 2014. Non-compliance can result in prosecution by the plaintiff and/or the Department of Fair Employment & Housing.

♦ Immigration-Related Retaliation (AB 263, SB 666, SB 496, AB 524): Effective January 1st, 2014, these laws expand protections for undocumented workers who complain about wages, hours, or working conditions. Employers who threaten to report an illegal worker to the government in response to a complaint about the workplace can be prosecuted for extortion. Penalties for non-compliance may include criminal prosecution, criminal penalties, loss of business license, and/or fines up to $10,000 per violation.

♦ Victims’ Rights in the Workplace: (SB 288 and SB 400): Effective January 1st, 2014, victims of certain crimes (including violent crimes, domestic violence, or stalking) are entitled to reasonable accommodations in the workplace and job-protected time off to attend court proceedings. A violation of these laws is a misdemeanor offense under California regulations.

♦ Paid Family Leave Expansion (SB 770): Modifies California’s paid family leave law to allow employees to take paid family leave to care for grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, and/or parents-in-law, effective July 1st, 2014. Non-compliance can result in a lien assessed on the employer for compensation owed to the employee who was denied leave.

♦ Other New 2014 Laws: Governor Brown also signed laws pertaining to criminal background checks, workers’ compensation, unemployment, ACA implementation in California, and a new 2014 state minimum wage increase.
