Human Resource (HR) guidelines are essential at the workplace in order for employees to know and understand how to handle one another. Most are put into law to ensure that they are enforced at the workplace. As such, organizations are required to train their employees on the same. With time, such laws are amended or new ones are formulated. Therefore, organizations are required to retrain their employees as regards refreshing them on the new changes.
Currently, the period 2018/2019 has seen some new changes in HR laws especially because of the #Me Too sexual harassment accusations that have rocked the world for the better part of 2018. HR law amendments are especially extensive in California, New York City and New York State.
Both the amendments and new laws are not limited to sexual harassment but also relevant to discrimination and general harassment of employees as well as unlawful employment practices.
Below is a list of laws formulated in 2018 as amendments or entirely new laws in the state of California.
- Senate Bill 1300 (SB 1300) – Act amendment
- Assembly Bill 1867 (AB 1867)
- Assembly Bill 3080 (AB 3080)
- Assembly Bill 3109 (AB 3109)
- Senate Bill 1300 (SB 1300) – Comprehensive
- Assembly Bill 1870 (AB 1870)
- Assembly Bill 2079 (AB 2079)
As lobbying for the bills continues at either the Senate or Assembly levels, it is important that organization adhere to them rather than face legal repercussions from the relevant authorities. To effect this, organizations are required to train their employees on the amended and new HR laws.
Training organizations are the best suited for offering training services for HR laws. They come up with competitive curriculums to benefit trainees in gathering new information about the amended and new HR laws.
As an organization, do not be left behind. Make sure your employees are adequately trained on the new HR laws.
