Annual California Roundup: Legislative (Not Much) and Judicial (A Lot) Developments (Employment Law Commentary 10-07)


It’s time once again for our annual California legislative wrap-up. For California employers, however, there is

little to report out of Sacramento this year; few labor and employment bills made it past Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s veto power. Yet as we all know, the state legislature is not the only game in town. The judicial branch has been particularly active in the employment law context this year. The purpose of this legal update thus is twofold: to bring employers up to date on what the Governor did and did not sign into law this year, as well as to review a number of notable legal decisions that promise to shape employer-employee relations in the years to come.
