Yet another #MeToo bill to be signed by Governor Brown is AB 3109, which centers around disclosure of sexual harassment. Effective January 1, 2019, the new law voids any provision in a settlement agreement or contract that waives a party’s right to testify about sexual harassment or criminal conduct in an administrative, legislative, or judicial proceeding.
The new law applies to any contracts or settlement agreements signed on or after January 1, 2019.
