- Minimum Wage Increases
- New Criminal Penalties for Wage Theft (AB 1003)
- Meal and Rest Period Premiums Must be Paid at the “Regular Rate” rather than at the base pay
- Amended COVID-19 notice requirements
- Record retention requirements expanded
- Employer’s ability to negotiate employee confidentiality in settlements agreements
- New California Employee Privacy Rights
