The New Year hasn’t even started and yet state lawmakers already are introducing bills for 2015. You’ll recall the California Legislature convened for a day earlier this month, when lawmakers were sworn in for the 2015-16 session. Starting then, legislators may introduce bills for the coming year. Here’s a look at some of the proposals by San Diego-area lawmakers.
Holiday Pay: Assembly Bill 67 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D) would require employers to pay their workers double if they work on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Reinstatement from the military: AB 64 by Chavez would require that civil service employees reinstated at their jobs after an active tour in the military be given the same shift and number of hours worked as they had immediately prior to going on active duty.
