California Wildfires: What Employers Need to Know 
More than a dozen wildfires are  raging up and down California , forcing evacuations and bringing tragedy and loss. The monstrous Carr fire in Shasta County has taken several lives, destroyed hundreds of residences and burned nearly 99,000 acres — and its currently only 20 percent contained.

During this trying time, the California Chamber of Commerce often receives questions from the employer community about how to help their employees, and employers must remember some key obligations.
