Businessman shaking hands

Employers need to have protocols in place that can ensure the safety of their employees and the public from COVID-19.

When the California stay at home orders ultimately expire and Californians start to slowly transition back into the workplace, it will be critical for employers to have protocols in place which can best ensure the safety of their employees and that can continue to protect the public-at-large from the on-going spread of COVID-19. Recognizing the importance of this endeavor, the Governor's office last week released the COVID-19 Industry Guidance for Office Workspaces and Cal/OSHA General Checklist in order to provide guidance to businesses wanting to support a safe, clean environment for their employees. While the guidance is quick to point out that it is not intended to revoke or repeal any additional rights an employee may have to be protected in the workplace, and that it is not to be considered exhaustive of the steps employers need to take in order to protect their employees, the guidance does provide a useful roadmap for businesses to consider when establishing a robust plan that will best serve to protect employees from the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.
