California Legislative Updates

Updated: Sep 24, 2020

Last week California’s Governor Newsom passed three new laws:

  • AB-685: Requires employers to report an outbreak to local public health officials and employees within one business day, ensuring that employees are notified of an exposure in a timely manner.

  • SB-1159: Offers more access to workers’ compensation benefits for front-line, essential employees like health care workers and first responders, who test positive for COVID-19 amid the pandemic.

  • SB-1383: Applicable to employers with 5 employees or more, SB-1383 ensures unpaid job protection for employees who miss work to care for themselves or a sick family member.

An overview of each of these laws is available on the download below.
