As 2017 quickly draws to a close, it is important for employers to review new laws that will be implemented January 1, 2018, and ensure their company is in compliance.
Starting in 2018, as a result of Senate Bill 396, employers must display a poster about transgender rights in the workplace, available here in English, and here in Spanish. The poster is required to be posted in a prominent and accessible location in the workplace. If ten (10) percent or more of a company’s workforce speaks a language other than English, the DFEH posters must also be displayed in that language.
You can brush up on the other bills that will become effective January 1, including the “Ban the Box” bill and the prohibition on salary inquiries here.
