The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is considering an emergency measure that would place further requirements on businesses operating within the County of Los Angeles. Just as the City of Los Angeles passed two weeks ago, the County is considering requiring employers to provide 80 hours of paid sick leave. Moreover, the County is reviewing a potential ordinance setting forth which employees must be rehired after being laid off due to COVID-19. Part of the order being considered by the Board is a requirement of “right of recall” for workers:
The provision of “right of recall” for workers laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic to be first rehired and “worker retention” policies in case businesses file bankruptcies and/or are sold as a result of the COVID-19 crisis (e.g., hospitality industry consolidation).
The Board meeting take place at 9:30 a.m. on April 14, 2020, and can be viewed here: http://bos.lacounty.gov/Board-Meeting/Board-Agendas
Any comments on the proposed motion should be directed to the Chair of the Board, Janice Hahn:
