COVID- 19 Resources

Guidance and resources for COVID-19 issues in the workplace can be found here: COVID-19 Guidance and Resources.

California’s labor laws require employers to pay employees at least the minimum wage, provide meal and rest breaks, pay overtime, and provide paid sick leave. The Labor Commissioner’s Office has posted resources to help workers and employers be aware of and comply with changes in the law regarding supplemental paid sick leave during the COVID-19 pandemic. These resources can be found here: Labor Commissioner’s COVID-19 Guidance and Resources.

To file a health and safety complaint for a COVID-19 workplace hazard, please contact Cal/OSHA: File a Workplace Safety Complaint.
