On December 28, 2022, the Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB) issued guidance regarding the implementation of AB 2183 which makes significant changes to the Agricultural Labor Relations Act. Agricultural employers may now register online to enter into a labor peace compact pursuant to new Labor Code section 1156.35. A list of employers who have so registered will be made publicly available on the ALRB’s website.

State and federal law require employers to meet workplace posting obligations. What must be posted depends on many factors including the number of employees, nature and location of the employer’s business, annual dollar volume, whether the employer is a federal contractor, and in certain instances the employer’s industry.

Posting requirements vary by statute which means not all employers will be subject to each posting requirement. Posters must be conspicuously placed in an area of the workplace frequented by employees throughout the workday.

The California Equal Pay Act prohibits an employer from paying its employees less than that of the opposite sex for equal work. Equal Pay Act mandates were strengthened with the signing of the California Fair Pay Act (SB 1162) which, starting January 1, 2023, will require employers to disclose additional pay data, provide pay ranges for posted positions and increase pay transparency for applicants and employees.
