2020 CA Employment Law Legislative Update | Mizrahi Law

2020 has turned out to be another bumper year for employment legislation! The pandemic provided the impetus for the California legislature to expand family and medical leave to employees at smaller companies, fill in gaps with respect to supplemental paid sick leave, and enact a number of measures aimed at keeping employees safer at work. The California legislature also provided greater whistleblower protections, expanded employer reporting obligations, clarified the law with respect to employee misclassification, and expanded the Labor Commissioner’s powers. Below, we cover the top employment laws that were signed into law or vetoed this legislative session.

Article: Same Ocean, Different Boats: The Pandemic's Disproportionate Impact on Certain Workers, Employment Law's Protections, and Its Limitations | Mizrahi Law

We are excited to share Ramit Mizrahi's article, featured on the cover of the California Labor & Employment Law Review September Issue: "Same Ocean, Different Boats: The Pandemic's Disproportionate Impact on Certain Workers, Employment Law's Protections, and Its Limitations." The article explores which workers have been most affected by the pandemic, where employment law serves to protect them, and where we must look outside of employment law to support those most in need. Click the link below to read the article in full.

Introduction:
"Six months ago, the coronavirus pandemic led to one of the most extreme economic shocks in the history of our nation. Real gross domestic product shrank at an estimated annual rate of 32.9% in the second quarter of 2020, after dropping by 5% in the first quarter. Nationally, employment rates were down by 20% at bottom in mid-April and are still nearly 7% below where they were in January 2020. Here in California, as of July 27, employment rates remain nearly 10% below January rates. Los Angeles County has been even harder hit, with an unemployment rate still at 17.5%.
Looking at overall numbers, however, fails to reveal the disproportionate impact that the pandemic, and the governmental response to it, has had on certain groups of workers—those working in hard-hit industries, who are disproportionately low earners, women, and workers of color; those with disabilities; older workers; and parents with young children. Employment law offers protections to certain workers, but has its limitations."

SB-142 Seeks to Significantly Expand Lactation Protections for Nursing Mothers

Our latest blog post covers SB 142, which will significantly expand lactation accommodations and protections for working mothers. Among other things, the bill would: (1) clarify employer obligations to provide breaks to nursing/pumping mothers; (2) require employers to provide safe and sanitary lactation rooms for employees wishing to express milk; (3) increase penalties for non-compliance; (4) prohibit discrimination and retaliation against employees who exercise or attempt to exercise their right to lactation accommodations; and (5) require that employers implement lactation accommodation policies.

Many mothers are forced to stop breastfeeding their babies because of the challenges of pumping at work. SB 142 will significantly expand their accommodation rights and protections.

California bill seeks to provide remedies for arbitration nonpayment

The deck is already stacked against employees in arbitration. Senate Bill 707, the Forced Arbitration Accountability Act, seeks to end an abusive tactic that employers use to further deny their employees justice—forcing them to arbitrate their legal claims and then suspending the process by refusing to pay the arbitration fees. The bill would pull employees out of this legal limbo by giving them options that allow them to proceed with their cases despite employer non-cooperation.

Senate Bill 707 is directed at employers who force employees into arbitration then refuse to pay the fees.

Ramit Mizrahi appeared on KPCC's Airtalk to discuss the importance of SB 188, The CROWN Act, which will amend the FEHA to clarify that the definition of "race" includes traits historically associated with race, such as protective hairstyles (including braids, locks, and twists).

Federal anti-discrimination law protects the rights of people to wear afros, but it doesn’t have any specific protections for other styles commonly worn by black men and women.
