San Diego Attorneys Address #MeToo Bills from California Legislature
In their bylined piece for the San Diego Daily Transcript titled “No more #MeToo? 11 bills await Brown's signature,” San Diego Partner David Amaya and Associate Megan Walker examine the eleven sexual harassment-related bills that recently passed the California legislature and are currently awaiting action by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Among the bills David and Megan discuss are SB 1300, which prohibits employers from requiring employees to sign a release of claims under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and AB 3080, which would prohibit employers from requiring employees to sign mandatory arbitration agreements. While Gov. Brown may not sign all eleven bills into law, David and Megan warn that many are likely to survive and that businesses with employees in the state must “make sure their contracts, records, training materials, and employment practices are up-to-date and compliant.”
