In June 2018, the United States Supreme Court issued its long anticipated decision in Janus v. AFSCME. On the same day, Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 866. Together, this case and legislation significantly impacted the rules related to public sector agency fees and unions dues. At the time, F3 Law partnered with the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) and our legal alliance partner firms to address the questions we were receiving regarding how employers can/should/must respond. That FAQ can be accessed here.
There continues to be no shortage of questions and conflicting information being circulated about these new legal requirements, including in relation to post-Janus Public Records Act requests for employee contact information. In an effort to address these issues, F3 Law recently partnered with ACSA and the California Teachers Association to issue new, joint guidance. You can access this guidance here.
The FAQ is intended only as a general summary of some of the legal issues presented. If you have any specific questions on the various issues presented by Janus and SB 866, please contact one of our six offices.
