California’s Changing COVID-19 Restrictions, Rules, and Notifications

The California legislature has passed AB 685, which would require employers to provide an extensive list of specific notices to employees and others if a worker is exposed to COVID-19. The bill would also authorize Cal/OSHA to close facilities if they are an “imminent hazard” to employees because of the virus. The bill is expected to be signed by the Governor into law. Click here to read more.
