California Right to Work Laws

So-called "right-to-work laws" protect the rights of non-union workers to find and secure employment. But since unions contract with employers (including state and local governments), such laws attempt to strike a balance by prohibiting both employers and unions from denying a job based on union status. In California, right to work laws do not exist.

However, the following links and resources should help you get acquainted with labor and employment laws in California and in general.
