Law360, New York (December 3, 2015, 2:17 PM ET) — Another year and another round of legislative updates. California’s Legislature continues to provide a rich source of law. This year the highlights include equal pay legislation, expanded Labor Commissioner authority, complicated piece-rate compensation requirements, additional protections for whistleblowers and protected classes for discrimination, and an attempt to stem at least some of the onslaught of “nonsubstantive/technical violation” Private Attorney General Act of 2004 (PAGA) lawsuits. All newly enacted laws are effective Jan. 1, 2016, unless otherwise stated.
