California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law several bills that will have significant impact on employers’ workplace obligations. Effective January 1, 2019, the new laws will restrict nondisclosure agreements and certain settlement agreements covering harassment and discrimination claims, significantly expand harassment training obligations (including for employers of under 50), require female quotas on California-headquartered boards of directors, and potentially require updating lactation accommodations.
