Covid19.pngCalChamber Urges Pull Back of Emergency COVID Rules
(Source: CalChamber)
The California Chamber of Commerce urged the California Legislature this week to correct a series of costly COVID-19 workplace mandates imposed through an emergency regulation order. The regulation, issued by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) late in 2020, requires employers to take a number of extraordinary steps that include providing costly unlimited paid time off for workers. It further creates an overly broad testing scheme that ignores the realities of current testing availability. More details.

The Oceanside Chamber signed on to a CalChamber coaltion in support of SB 74 (Borgeas), a bill that creates a new grant program for the state’s small businesses and non-profit organizations. Known as the Keep California Working Act, the bill provides grant awards between $5,000 and $60,000 for selected businesses that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. If approved, the funds can be used toward payroll, healthcare benefits, paid leave, rent, as well as costs associated with safely re-opening. More details.
