AB 313 - Civil service: Limited Examination and Appointment Program
Historically, working-age people with disabilities are among the most unemployed and underemployed members of society.
SB 331 - Settlement and non-disparagement agreements
SB 331 is critical to addressing the role that “secret settlements” play in perpetuating hostile work environments by silencing workers and allowing complaints to be swept under the rug.
SB 639 - Minimum wages: persons with disabilities
SB 639 addresses historic barriers to gainful employment for people with disabilities by prohibiting the California Labor Commission from issuing employers a new license that allows for the payment of subminimum wage to employees with disabilities beginning in 2022, and requires the state to develop a plan to assist subminimum wage employees to achieve gainful employment.
SB 665 - Employment policy: voluntary veterans’ preference
Oppose Unless Amended
Unfortunately, SB 665 would eliminate disparate impact protection by permitting employers to justify hiring decisions under a veterans’ preference policy even if the policy is implemented in a way that has a discriminatory impact on other protected groups.
