New 2018 California Employment Laws: Major Changes Effective January 1, 2018

Live Webinar: Wednesday, November 29, 2017

10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn what you need to comply with new employment legislation taking effect January 1, 2018 that affects job applications, what you can ask job candidates, employment verification for Form I-9 and ICE inspections, parental leave entitlements, and more.



Gov. Jerry Brown just signed into law several bills that directly affect California employers’ compliance requirements. The new laws cover a wide range of topics:

  • Salary history inquiries for job candidates
  • Expanded parental leave entitlements under CFRA
  • “Ban the box” restrictions relating to applicants’ previous convictions
  • Federal immigration officials’ access to nonpublic worksite areas and employment reverification; the law also includes a comprehensive notice requirement
  • New AB 1825 sexual harassment training requirements


Plus, California has minimum wage increases going into effect January 1, as well as a new exempt salary threshold for employers with 26 or more employees.

Get ready to start the new year off right. Join us for an in-depth California-specific webinar on November 29. Marc Jacuzzi, an experienced California employment attorney, will explain your new obligations and the steps you must take to comply.

You’ll learn:

  • What you cannot ask job applicants about salary history
  • What you must now provide to applicants with the pay scale for the position in question
  • New minimum wage and exempt salary threshold requirements taking effect January 1, 2018
  • What happens if an applicant voluntarily discloses what he or she makes
  • New requirements for harassment training—which employers are covered and what they must do to comply
  • Parental leave obligations under the New Parent Leave Act
  • When inquiries for an applicant’s conviction history are barred, and what covered employers cannot consider, distribute, or disseminate in connection with any application for employment
  • How California’s newly enacted Immigrant Worker Protection Act (AB 450) restricts federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials from accessing non-public worksite areas
  • New Form I-9 and other records inspection requirements—and what you will not be able to do to re-verify current employees’ employment eligibility
  • Full details on how to interpret the “one day’s rest in seven” law
  • The perils of non-compliance under new PAGA rules
