Reminder: Free Webinar Regarding Important Legal Changes

By Kevin Cleveland and David Snapp

Young, Cohen & Durrett are putting on a free Webinar on 10/7/2020 at 2pm sponsored by The Employers’ Council regarding two important changes to the law in California.

One is an expansion of the California Family Leave Act (CFRA) requiring any company employing five or more eligible employees to start offering CFRA leave on January 1, 2021. In response, those companies will want to draft updated leave policies and institute leave procedures for the identification and handling of CFRA leaves once the law is in effect. Larger companies with over 50 employees who were already providing CFRA, will still need to update their policies and forms due to the changes in what CFRA covers in time for the January 1, 2021 implementation date.

The second law changes the California Worker’s Compensation presumption about whether an employee caught COVID while at work has changed to more narrowly define who is covered and under what circumstances. It also creates a new worker’s compensation presumption about COVID “outbreaks”. Additionally, employers are now required to report when employees test positive for COVID and will be required to provide specific information to their worker’s compensation claims administrator within three business days of learning that information.

These topics will be discussed in more depth on 10/7/2020 at 2pm on a webinar that David Snapp and Kevin Cleveland are doing for The Employers’ Counsel. More information about the seminar and how to attend can be viewed by clicking below.
