Los Angeles partner Mark Terman wrote an article for California CPA Magazine titled, “New Year, New Laws.”
Mark notes that regulation of California employers increases each year, with 554 bills introduced in the California Legislature mentioning “employer” in 2012. In his article, he provides an overview of significant new regulation affecting private employers, including rules related to social media, religious dress and grooming, breastfeeding, whistle-blower protections, contracts with commission employees and more. He emphasizes that “Employers should consider how these new laws impact their workplaces, and then review and update their personnel practices and policies with the advice of experienced attorneys or HR professionals.”
