In Governor Jerry Brown’s final bill-signing period in office, California Legislators sent him 1,217 bills to consider. This is more than any governor of California has seen since the year 2004. In this final period, Governor Brown signed 1016 bills and vetoed 201.
After such a busy period, many employers may be confused and worried about complying with new laws. Our Los Angeles sexual harassment attorney breaks down SB 1300, an important sexual harassment bill, telling you what past decisions it confirms or rejects and what new sections it adds to Government Code.
This bill adds a section to the Government Code that expresses that the point of harassment laws is to provide resident California employees with an equal opportunity to succeed at work. In doing so, the bill rejects or affirms the following judicial decisions:
SB 1300 also provides the following:
It was originally proposed that SB 1300 subject alleged harassers to personal liability for discrimination, retaliation, and other adverse actions taken by an employer against those who opposed practices prohibited by FEHA, or those who participated in a FEHA action. Because amendment SB 1038 didn’t make it out of Legislature, it will not become an operative part of SB 1300.
