California Unisex Single-Occupant Restroom Law Takes Effect

California employers must identify single-user restrooms as being unisex under a new law that took effect March 1, 2017.

Approved signage must be posted that identifies all restrooms with no more than one water closet and one urinal with a locking mechanism controlled by the user as being available to all genders. Specifically, there must be a geometric symbol on the door that is an equilateral triangle superimposed onto a circle. Any signs that designate single-user restrooms as male-only or female-only must be removed.
