California recently passed a new law SB 396 that requires all California employers to post a “Transgender Rights in the Workplace” poster starting January 1, 2018. The new poster must be displayed along with other mandatory workplace notices in a prominent and accessible location in the workplace. View, download and print the Transgender Rights in the Workplace poster provided by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

Every residential address in the U.S. can now order four free at-home COVID-19 tests through the federal government.The free tests present an opportunity for California dentists who are complying with the state’s vaccinate-or-test mandate that has been in force since Aug. 23.
The U.S. Supreme Court last week blocked one federal vaccination mandate for larger employers and upheld another for specified workers nationwide. But regardless of enforceability, the federal rules apply to very few California dental practices, which instead must comply with the stricter state or local vaccination mandate.
The California Department of Consumer Affairs on Jan. 11 reinstated a waiver that temporarily lets dental professionals in California count recorded lectures as live continuing education as long as the courses are web-based and allow participants to interact with the presenter in real time.
