It is International Worker’s Day, which has its roots in advocacy for the eight-hour work day, and the 5-day work week. Since the social movements of the Industrial Revolution, California has been on the forefront of regulating wages and hours of work.
Today, the California Labor Code contains over 9,000 sections (yes, you read that right)! And many of the most significant California employment laws are not even codified in the Labor Code, such as the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (Government Code sec.12940, et seq.).
For this reason, today is a good day to remember some of the new Labor Code provisions that went into effect January 1, 2019. (Expect to hear more from me in the future as new labor bills wind their way through this legislative session.)
I am passionate about providing entrepreneurs and individuals effective and high-quality representation in all aspects of California labor and employment law.
