A new proposal has been posted to the California Courts web site, at http://www.courts.ca.gov/policyadmin-invitationstocomment.htm
Judicial Branch Administration: Policies on Workplace Conduct
Summary: To promote improvement and greater consistency in how judicial branch entities prevent and address harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and inappropriate workplace conduct based on a protected classification, the Rules and Projects Committee (RUPRO) proposes a new rule of court to establish standardized baseline requirements for court policies on the prevention, reporting, and resolution of these types of complaints. This proposal originated from recommendations made by the Work Group for the Prevention of Discrimination and Harassment, appointed by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye. Those recommendations, including a recommendation to adopt a rule on these issues, were approved by the Judicial Council on July 19, 2019.
The deadline for comment is 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 15, 2019.
