As if California businesses didn’t already have enough to juggle amidst a global pandemic, employers were surprised to see the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) adopt an emergency temporary standard for COVID-19 testing, documenting, and reporting requirements.

COVID-19 Employer Rights & Responsibilities

COVID-19 has placed an entirely different emphasis on workplace safety and a clean working environment. We've covered quite a few topics on your rights and responsibilities as an employer, including for testing and vaccinations. If you're looking for COVID-specific information on the blog, you can find it at this link:

The laws now state that employees must provide...

  • Employers with 100 or more employees provide up to 56 hours of paid leave per year.
  • Employers with fewer than 100 employees must provide 40 hours of paid leave each year.
  • Employers with up to four employees must provide 40 hours of paid leave each year IF the company had a net income of at least $1M the previous tax year, or 40 hours of unpaid leave if the company had less than $1M in net income during the previous tax year.

We've been highlighting our 7Cs - the values we believe are imperative for quality service. This month, we'll discuss cost reduction - how efficient and effective work methodology helps reduce costs for our clients. Stay tuned as we ask our legal team how they uphold the value of Cost Reduction.

As a result, the family can use the name only in the Mattoon area, and the Florida-based burger chain can use the name in every other area of the US, except for Mattoon, IL.

Truth in advertising still matters. A class-action lawsuit was filed in federal court against Under Armour, arguing that the company has made fraudulent claims about its UA Rush line.
