How This Impacts Mobility
The new law will apply directly to most Relocation Management Companies (RMCs) as well as many corporate members. However, as with most other industries, subcontractors to RMCs and companies transferring employees will also be impacted, as RMCs will require third parties to adhere to the law as well. RMC contracts will likely require that suppliers comply with the law when the relocation involves a California resident.
