California Law Aims to Protect Janitors from Harassment and Wage Theft

29 Mar 2017 7:34 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)

The janitorial-services industry has drawn attention for its poor working conditions. Not only do janitors frequently work alone at night, they are vulnerable to sexual harassment and often fear retaliation for reporting harassers, according to a University of California, Berkeley, report.

Janitorial employers will soon have to register with the state labor commissioner, and the list of employers will be publicly available through a database.

Additionally, the new law directs the state to create a "sexual violence and harassment prevention training" program.
