A free resource for California employers about the sexual harassment training law (AB 1825).

FEHC finalizes regs - 2007 version

Thursday, April 26, 2007
Yes, they did it again. According to the Fair Employment & Housing Commission's AB 1825 proposed regulations page,

"After considering comments it received to its March 27, 2007, modified harassment training regulations, the Commission adopted these regulations as its final proposed regulations at its April 23, 2007 Commission meeting. These regulations interpret Government Code section 12950.1 [A.B. 1825], which requires sexual harassment training for supervisors of employers with 50 or more employees. FINAL PROPOSED REGULATIONS (pdf)."

So, the FEHC will once again submit "final proposed regulations" to the Office of Administrative Law for review, and we'll probably get the final (for gosh sake please make it so) official regulations in another 30 days.

Form I-9 expires

Friday, April 13, 2007
Employers are required by federal law to complete an I-9 form to verify all new employees' eligibility to work in the US. However, on March 31, 2007, the official I-9 form "expired."

(Or, at least, the OMB number at the top of the form expired.)

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, you generally don't have to complete paperwork that doesn't have an un-expired OMB number. Even so, employers are still required to verify employment eligibility for all new employees. So, they should keep using the "expired" form until a new one is issued.
