A new tidal wave of employment laws is about to flood the shores of California. On January 1, 2012, multiple new laws will take effect in California, and they will have a significant impact on the employment practices of companies with California operations. California employers will need to take prompt action to ensure compliance, including revising employment policies and practices such as hiring and compensation practices, employee handbooks, posters, leave of absence administration, and healthcare coverage. A reference chart describing the changes is provided below.

Morgan Lewis will host a webinar, "New California Employment Laws for 2012: What Employers Need to Know," to discuss these new laws in more detail on November 17, 2011 at 12:30 p.m. ET. Register for the webinar.
