NEW CALIFORNIA LAWS FOR 2020

 

Here are a few of the new California employment laws that may affect you.

AB 5 - Gig worker law

The landmark labor law reclassifies some independent contractors as employees. It aims to provide new protections for so-called gig economy workers such as minimum wage, paid sick days and health insurance benefits. Organizations representing freelance journalists have already sued over the law and Uber has said it will not adhere to the changes.

SB 3 - Minimum wage increase

The law raises the state minimum wage to $13 an hour for workplaces with 26 or more employees and to $12 for workplaces with fewer than 26 employees. The law outlines incremental minimum wage increases through 2023 when it will reach $15 an hour for all workplaces.

AB 9 - Employment discrimination

The law allows employees up to three years to file complaints of discrimination, harassment or retaliation with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Previously, employees had only had one year to file a complaint.

SB 142 - Protection for nursing mothers

The law requires employers to provide clean and safe lactation rooms for breastfeeding mothers. Employers would have to “provide access to a sink and refrigerator in close proximity to the employee’s workspace,” the law says. It also requires the room be free of intrusion and that employers offer mothers breaks specifically for nursing.

SB 188 - Hairstyle discrimination

The law protects employees from racial discrimination because of hairstyles, such as afros, braids, twists and locks.California is the first state in the nationto ban such practices.

SB 1343 - Sexual harassment training

The law requires workplaces with five or more employees to provide at least two hours of sexual harassment training within six months of being hired.

SB 83 - Extending paid leave

The law increases paid leave from six to eight weeks for people taking care of a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child. It takes effect July 1, 2020.

Fraud Prevention Tips

 

Take the following steps to help fight fraud:

  

Review activity on all of your bank and credit card accounts regularly and report suspicious activity promptly.

   

Create a strong, unique password for each online sign-in – and use additional security features when available.

  

Protect your devices by installing antivirus software and keeping your operating systems, applications and web browser up-to-date on your mobile phone, tablet and computer.

 

Stay alert to online threats. Avoid clicking suspicious links or responding to emails or texts urging you to act quickly. Do not provide personal information like your account numbers, PIN or Social Security number.

 

Never trust caller ID: Always validate a person’s organization by calling them back through an official phone number.

    • Scammers may pose as government officials, law enforcement or even Bank of America employees to steal your personal information.
    • Zelle® and other payment apps, such as Venmo, should only be used to send money to friends, family or others you trust and not to buy goods or services from people you don’t know.

 

Know how to identify red flags. In many of the most common types of scams, you may be:

      • Pressured to send money
      • Threatened with law enforcement action
      • Told to purchase gift cards and provide codes as a form of payment
      • Asked to cash a check for a stranger
      • Instructed to make a cash deposit for sweepstakes
      • Offered more than you are asking for something with a request to send the overpayment elsewhere

Project Report from MHSOAC

 TOGETHER WE CAN: Reducing Criminal Justice Involvement for People with Mental Illness

California’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) launched an eighteen month review of this issue and has just released the report, Together We Can: Reducing Criminal Justice Involvement for People with Mental Illness.

 

While not a comprehensive study of mental illness, it’s an actionable roadmap for change calling for California to make an immediate and strong commitment to address this complex issue. “One of the greatest policy failures of our time was dismantling our state mental health care institutions without having adequate community-based treatment in its place,” said MHSOAC Commissioner and Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown. “Our jails shouldn’t be used in place of treatment. We believe we should, and can, do better.”
