5 Bills for California Employers to Track in 2017



By Stephen Frank

Sacramento works hard to kill jobs directly and to make jobs too expensive to fill and use.  We are a State that still forces workers to pay bribes to work, pay for health care that is mediocre at best and deadly at worst.  We make it so expensive to hire employees—and due to State laws, we are forced to offer jobs to criminals—and THEN ask if they have been convicted of a crime.  Here are some of the more interesting bills, to understand the problem.

S.B. 62 would allow an employee to take leave to care for more individuals under the California Family Rights Act.

The bill would expand the term “child” to include a domestic partner’s children and would remove restrictions based on age and dependent status. It would also permit employees to take leave to care for a grandparent, grandchild, sibling or domestic partner with a serious health condition. Additionally, the definition of “parent” would be revised to include a parent-in-law.

Who pays?  This is why the cost of doing business, and government in California is so high—not the quality of the worker but the cost of government regulations.  Texas is still open for business.  Thought you should know about these.
