Starting The Signing-Of-Bills Small With AB 3364

Jackson Lewis P.C.

On August 31st, the California legislature closed its 2019 – 2020 session with the Assembly and Senate passing over 35 employment-related bills. However, thus far, the only employment-related bill the Governor has signed is Assembly Bill 3364 (“AB 3364”). AB 3364, titled “Judiciary omnibus,” covers a myriad of items from the licensure of attorney to the debts of limited liability corporations.

One portion of AB 3364 relevant to employers is the amendments to Government Code sections 12921, 12926, and 12940. These amendments clarify that the Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) prohibits discrimination against individuals who either are veterans or because of the individual’s military status, instead of veteran and military status. This makes conforming, nonsubstantive changes to the term “veteran or military status” in the FEHA.
