Posted by Daniel Zerga | Nov 16, 2023 | 0 Comments

Governor Gavin Newsom officially signed Senate Bill No. 553 ("SB 553") into law on September 20, 2023. This legislation mandates that covered California employers, including both school and community college districts (“Districts”), must implement measures to both prevent and address instances of workplace violence. Noteworthy is the addition of Section 6401.9 to the California Labor Code through SB 553, making it mandatory for covered employers to establish a comprehensive workplace violence prevention plan by July 1, 2024.
