Corporate Counsel: Companies with California Employees Face New Harassment Training Requirements in 2019

January 07, 2019

On January 1, 2019, California implemented a series of new sexual-harassment laws that will affect workers based in the state. “The law that is going to have the probably greatest immediate impact in terms of company compliance concerns is the added requirement of training for nonsupervisory employees by 2020,” said Adam Karr, a partner in the firm’s Newport Beach office.

Karr practices before state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate levels, and has represented clients in a broad range of disputes, including wage and hour matters, contract disputes, non-compete and trade secret litigation, employee benefits claims, and matters arising under the National Labor Relations Act and Railway Labor Act.
