San Diego Attorneys Share Holiday Party Best Practices Following New #MeToo Laws in California
In their bylined piece for the Daily Journal titled “Mistletoe and #MeToo: Work holiday party best practices,” San Diego partner David B. Monks and associate Megan E. Walker offer advice for employers for planning work holiday parties in the wake of new sexual harassment laws going into effect in CA.
David and Megan review the major bills signed by Gov. Brown in 2018, including SB 1300, and remind employers of sexual harassment training requirements. While the new training requirements won’t take effect until January, David and Megan explain that the news laws reinforce the expectation of employers to train employees to treat each other well. They conclude their article by encouraging employers to take great care to ensure employees’ safety.
