As Amends the Law Today


 Article 6 (commencing with Section 9250) is added to Chapter 2 of Part 1 of Division 2 of Title 2 of the Government Code, to read:

Article  6. Employment Practices
 (a) Notwithstanding any other law, and consistent with the United States Constitution and the California Constitution, the laws of this state that regulate the employment practices of private employers apply to the Legislature. A provision of law that regulates the employment practices of employers, including the provisions of the Labor Code, applies to the Legislature regardless if it exempts state agencies or other public employers from its requirements.
(b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a) or any other law, expenditure of the proceeds of a civil penalty imposed on the Legislature pursuant to any provision of law that regulates employment practices is contingent upon an appropriation in the annual Budget Act or another statute for that purpose.
SEC. 2.
 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
