    California’s New Workplace Violence Prevention Law

    In September 2023, California introduced a groundbreaking workplace violence prevention law, SB 553/California Labor Code Section 6401.9, requiring virtually every employer in the state to develop, implement, and annually train on a written workplace violence prevention plan. The law also requires employers to maintain a log of workplace violence incidents.

    Under the law, training must cover specific material, including elements of their organization’s unique workplace violence prevention plan, workplace violence hazards identified by the employer, and understanding all definitions and requirements of the law.
