From July 1, 2017 new regulations will be implemented, to limit California employers’ use of background information and criminal history in making hiring decisions. Too many employers bury their head in the sand when it comes to compliance with labor and employment laws, especially when it comes to searching for and hiring new employees. Many do not realize that claims for discrimination and harassment may also be brought by applicants and new hires. The onboarding of new hires is often fraught with costly mistakes.
