California’s complex employment laws prompted 22,000 calls to the CalChamber Labor Law Helpline in 2018. On the latest episode of CalChamber’s The Workplace podcast, CalChamber President Allan Zaremberg and Erika Frank, CalChamber Executive Vice President of Legal Affairs and General Counsel, discuss the most frequently asked questions—a good indicator of the compliance issues that are the most challenging for California businesses.
“There are so many questions that are out there for the California employer,” says Frank. “It’s quite challenging without having resources available.”
What’s hot on the helpline today? Erika Frank says the Labor Law Helpline is ringing off the hook with questions about the new mandatory sexual harassment training requirements.
The new law requires that all employers with five or more employees provide 1-hour training for employees and 2-hours training for supervisors.
