New Anti-Harassment Laws Are Coming to California, SHRM, ft. Elizabeth Stonhaus
Elizabeth Stonhaus, attorney in the Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck, LLP San Francisco office, was quoted in an article written by Lisa Nagele-Piazza published by SHRM on May 3, 2018.
State legislators are considering numerous harassment-prevention bills.
California employers can expect to see more changes to the state’s sexual-harassment-prevention laws during the current legislative year, but exactly how those laws will change remains to be seen.
From Hollywood to Silicon Valley, employers in the state have been revisiting their harassment-prevention programs. “In the last year, the technology industry joined the growing list of industries making headlines for allegations of sexual harassment and gender inequality,” said Elizabeth Stonhaus, a labor and employment attorney at Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck in San Francisco. “Since Northern California is home to a significant number of technology companies, we anticipate many technology employers in the area will be closely following new legislation related to the #MeToo movement.”
