What the FFCRA, CARES Act, California’s Shelter-in-Place Orders and Other Relief Measures Mean for California Employers
Latest update on 09.09.2020 at 4:45 p.m. PT
Emergency declarations – including a California state-wide stay at home order – and a variety of executive and health orders issued from federal, state, county, and city authorities in response to COVID-19 have temporarily changed or suspended a number of requirements for California employers. Sick leave regulations have been altered, paid leave laws are being considered at various levels of government, and the California WARN Act requirements have been relaxed. Additionally, a number of wage and hour, leave, and discrimination issues have arisen as companies adjust to telecommuting, social distancing, quarantine, and shelter-in-place practices implemented in their own businesses as well as the businesses of their suppliers and customers.
