New laws due to COVID-19 require quick reactions from employers

Oct 14, 2020 11:00:00 AM — by Enterprise Health

A new Sacramento County Worker Protection, Health and Safety Act of 2020 went into effect on October 1, 2020 to help protect workers from potential exposure to the coronavirus. The ordinance requires employers located within the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County to implement specified social distancing, mitigation, and cleaning protocols and practices in the workplace. It also creates a supplemental paid sick leave requirement for employers with 500 or more employees.

These new requirements are just one example of the many new laws taking effect in California due to the COVID-19 pandemic and showcase the need for employers to be quick to adapt and respond with new protocols, innovative approaches and cutting-edge digital solutions to better manage employee health.    

While California laws, such as the Sacramento County ordinance, may not be adopted nationally, it could be a sign of what’s to come for employers in other states. At the very least, it will affect best practices at employer organizations. So, whether you operate in California or want a glimpse of what may be coming your way from the West Coast, watch this free webinar — COVID-19: The California Experience.
