California’s COVID-19 Employer Playbook for a Safe Reopening

Posted in Labor Law, New Legislation and Regulations, Wage & Hour

The California Department of Public Health (“CDPH”) issued its “COVID-19 Employer Playbook” on July 24, 2020 in an effort to provide employers with a comprehensive guide related to COVID-19 as employers reopen their business. According to the CDPH, by following the Employer Playbook, employers will be able to do their part in reducing the risk and spread of COVID-19 in the workplace, and ensure that California businesses stay open. The subjects covered in the Playbook include how to open safely; what to do if there is a case of COVID-19 in the workplace; worker education; and enforcement and compliance. The Playbook contains many links to various employer and worker resources, as well as case studies to help illustrate the importance of implementing proper social distancing and safety measures.
