Current law generally requires state and local public employers that conduct new employee orientations to provide the exclusive representative of those employees access to the orientation. Current law requires the exclusive representative to receive at least 10 days’ notice in advance of an orientation and requires that the structure, time, and manner of exclusive representative access shall be determined through mutual agreement between the employer and the exclusive representative, subject to specified requirements. This bill would require that the date, time, and place of the orientation be confidential and not be shared with anyone other than employees or the exclusive representative.
