Security Companies in Los Angeles: RAS Consulting & Investigations

In California, a safe business is not a luxury but the law.  California Labor Code 6400 requires that “every employer shall furnish employment and a place of employment that is safe and healthful for the employees therein.”  Additionally, every employer is required to have on file a written and effective Injury and Illness Prevention (IIP) Program.  The state provides a voluntary model to employers to prevent big issues like workplace violence, theft and injury (  When it comes to security, California wants to make sure you are protected. .

If mandated safety is not reason enough to provide security, California holds 6.4% of the nation’s total charges for Workplace Discrimination, with 50% of these resulting from Retaliation lawsuits.  Nearly 3,000 residents file claims annually with the EEOC against California employers around issues related to hostile work environments and employees.

California is a complex state for employers and it’s no wonder that the annual meeting of the Society of Human Resource Managers California hosts popular topics like:

  • “Managing the Internal Whistle Blower: Policies and Practices to Avoid Claims of Retaliation”
  • “How to Avoid 10 Common Employer Mistakes When Conducting an Investigation”
  • “Supervisors, Your Most Important Liability”
  • “Employee Privacy Rights: How Far Do They Go?”
  • “So You Want to Do the Right Thing, But Is It Legal?”
  • “HR’s Role in Avoiding a $10M Lawsuit”

Security in California is big business.
