While 2020 has brought a lot of uncertainty in the workplace, California's sweeping new laws will aim to shed clearer light on how employers can conduct business in a pandemic-stricken world.
Measures in direct response to COVID-19 include an expansion of workers compensation to include COVID-related illnesses and a mandate that would require employers to provide written notice of coronavirus exposure to all employees and subcontractors.
A new law unrelated to the pandemic include a measure to require employers to report and break down their pay data based on race, ethnicity and sex. We talk with an employment attorney to help us have a deeper understanding of the state's new employment legislations and what they mean for millions of Californians.
