This year, the California Legislature introduced a whopping 2,495 bills – and hundreds of these had to do with labor and employment issues.  Governor Brown signed many into law on October 15, 2017. Here are the top 4 new laws for 2018:

“BAN THE BOX” – Criminal Conviction History

Los Angeles and San Francisco already had local ordinances prohibiting employers for asking about criminal histories before a job is offered to an applicant. This new law (AB 1008) applies similar requirements upon employers statewide.

The law prohibits employers with five (5) or more employees from considering criminal history until a conditional offer of employment has been made. If an employer decides to deny employment based on the criminal history, it must make an individualized assessment as to the 1) nature and gravity of the offense or conduct, 2) the time that has passed since the offense or conduct and completion of the sentence, and 3) the nature of the job held or sought.

You’ve got a stack of customer invoices to create and bills to pay, all sitting patiently on your desk waiting for your attention.  You dread this time of the month because numbers are just not your thing.  You hate how long it takes to get the paperwork taken care of, and you don’t understand the results your bookkeeper gives you.  It just looks like a list of numbers on a page that has no relation to the activities you’ve completed during the month.

And then you hear in the news that a bookkeeper is going to jail for embezzling funds from a small business, a government agency or non-profit organization. Great.  Just Great.  Just recently, a former bookkeeper for Arizona Conference of Police and Sheriffs was sentenced to 3 years in jail for stealing $195,000.    Another bookkeeper was accused of stealing $525,000 from Pine-Strawberry Water Improvement District AND $316,000 from Sunny Mountain Realty.  I could go on – there are more cases. Nationwide.
