Amendments to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) regulations interpreting California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA” or the “Act”) will go into effect on April 1, 2016. The changes, which reflect employers’ affirmative duty to create a workplace environment that is free from employment practices prohibited by the Act, will impact employers with five or more employees in a variety of ways, including a likely need to bolster training methods and update Employee Handbooks.
