California Employers And Employees May Soon Be Able To Choose Any Forum/Law/Venue They Want So Long As Its California

Recess Is Almost Over

The California legislature is in recess until August 15 at noon (J.R. 51(a)(3)). The last day for any bill to be passed this year will be September 9 (J.R. 61(a)(13). This means that many bills will soon begin their final sprint to the Governor’s desk.

A Bill To Watch

One bill to watch is AB 267. This bill would prohibit an employer from requiring an employee or job applicant, as a condition of employment:

•to waive the application of California law to any dispute relating to employment, or the securing of employment, in California.

•to resolve outside of California any dispute regarding employment, or the securing of employment, in California.
