California’s Property Service Workers Protection Act went into effect on July 1, 2018. The Act requires that by no later than October 1, 2018, all companies providing “janitorial services” (defined as “any person or entity that employs at least one employee and one or more covered workers and that enters into contracts, subcontracts, or franchise arrangements to provide janitorial services”) are required to register with the Labor Commissioner and pay an annual fee of $500. Beginning January 1, 2019, janitorial services will be required to provide employees with in-person sexual harassment prevention training every two years. As well, as of July 1, 2018, janitorial services “shall provide all covered workers a copy of the Department of Fair Employment and Housing pamphlet DFEH-185, titled ‘Sexual Harassment’….” The steps for registering with the Labor Commission and other compliance-related materials can be found at: https://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/Janitorial_Providers_Contractors.html.
