California has enacted two new pieces of legislation in order to improve job opportunities, for women in particular. SB-63 expands the California Family Rights Act to provide up to 12 weeks' unpaid parental leave for employees of companies with as few as 20 employees, while AB-168 prohibits employers from seeking or relying on a job applicant's salary history information when deciding whether to offer employment and what salary to offer.
