Attention California employers! A new law requiring a Workplace Violence Prevention Plan (WVPP) goes into effect on July 1, 2024. This applies to nearly all businesses in the state, with a few exceptions which include healthcare workplaces with their own plan, employees who work remotely, and small, private workspaces.

What You Need to Know:

  • Develop a Written Plan: A customized WVPP tailored to your specific workplace and potential hazards is mandatory.

  • Employee Involvement: Your plan must include an employee participation strategy for implementation, hazard identification, and ongoing improvement.

  • Training is Crucial: Annual training on your WVPP and additional training, when necessary, ensures your team is prepared.
