Description Recording of the live event on November 2, 2023 Webinar Description California employers are required to provide a healthful and safe environment for their employees — not just as this relates to workplace injuries and illnesses, but also as far as reducing the risk of workplace violence. Overall, employers haven’t had any specific requirements around workplace violence other than to generally prevent and mitigate it. But that’s changed with the signing of California Senate Bill (SB) 553 into law on September 30, 2023, establishing new workplace violence standards. Applicable to all employers in California except those in the health care sector*, SB 553 has a significant list of workplace violence prevention requirements that employers must review and address before many of SB 553’s provisions become effective in 2024. Join CalChamber's Employment Law Experts for a discussion of what employers should know about the new workplace violence prevention requirements, including: Creating a written workplace violence prevention plan; Training employees to identify and report workplace violence hazards; Logging workplace violence incidents; Filing workplace violence restraining orders; and Maintaining records of compliance with SB 553.
