New California Law AB 685 necessitates public & private employers to give a Written Notice of COVID-19 exposure in the workplace and empowers CAL/OSHA to shut down workplaces posing any hazard.
AB 685 is effective from January 1, 2021, and employers are advised to review their COVID-19 related process and procedures NOW to ensure they are compliant. Given that employee notices must be circulated within one business day, it is imperative that employers have their employee notice procedure and their identification processes in advance.
