Right of Recall and Worker Retention
The City of Los Angeles has introduced two new ordinances that both went into effect on June 14, 2020. The Right of Recall Ordinance (RORO) and Worker Retention Ordinance (WRO) were put into place to ensure fair employment practices and to legally protect workers laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic or when a business changes ownership.  
The Office of Wage Standards has promulgated Rules and Regulations to help employers and employees understand their responsibilities and rights. We encourage those implementing these ordinances to check our website regularly for the latest guidance available. If you haven't already, please also see the guidance on  Paid Sick Leave (LAMC 187) and COVID-19  as well as the  Mayor's Public Order: Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Due to COVID-19 .

In a continued effort to develop communication and relationships with our partners and networks, the Business Operations Center (BOC) is providing a weekly BOC situation status report for the COVID-19 response. This is For Official Use Only.
The BOC Situation Status Report for Operational Period 40: July 8th - July 14th, 2020 is attached.
The BOC is currently activated at a Level 1 and staffed from 0800-1700 hours, to support the Emergency Operations Center COVID-19 Response.

  Re-eninCalifoa Cition for Safe Reening g
Following Governor Newsom’s order to once again temporarily close indoor dining and operations for restaurants, the California Coalition for Safe Re-Opening , a coalition of Chambers of Commerce and business associations throughout the state. The coalition came together to formulate proposals for reopening California businesses in a logical and methodical manner that maintains the safety and health of customers, workers and the public.
Building on previous efforts, the coalition proposed a Three Point Economic and Public Health Recovery Plan – immediate measures that should be considered prior to any more business shutdowns.
Those measures include:
1.) Require the State to use emergency funds to supplement funding for county health departments and enforcement divisions that oversee adherence to reopening regulations. That would include authorizing counties to grant immediate reopening for all restaurants and bars that demonstrate compliance with that county’s reopening regulations, in accordance with state regulations.
2.) The creation of a California COVID-19 Emergency Business Interruption Fund to provide grants to businesses to cover expenses related to safe reopening in June 2020, as well as all losses including displaced revenue related to the July 1st closure order and future unanticipated closures.
3.) Creation of a Safe Re-Opening Task Force which would work directly with state and local officials in the implementation of Mandatory Testing and creation of Recovery Centers as the dual alternative to shutting down segments of the economy. 
It will only take a minute!
Thank you for taking action!
