custom_campaign_image_advocacy_-_Copy.jpgChamber Joins Coalition to Oppose Paid Supplemental COVID-19 Sick Leave
As the State of California considers imposing a new COVID-19 paid sick leave mandate through the budget process, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has joined a Cal Chamber led coalition to oppose these efforts. In an email to Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath, Chamber CEO Scott Ashton wrote, " We respectfully request that the Assemblymember stand in opposition to any new requirements of this type on our business community. Our businesses have not even been allowed to operate at any sustainable level and cannot afford any additional burdens." More details. Read full letter.

HPT-banner-300x250-wo-code.pngMandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Available for Discounted Price through the Oceanside Chamber
California law requires all employers with five or more employees to provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees by January 1, 2021, and then every two years. This mandatory training for supervisors (two hours) and nonsupervisory employees (one hour) must also take place within six months of hire or promotion and again every two years. (Taking these individual-learner courses in a group setting will not satisfy the state requirements.) The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has partnered with CalChamber to offer a 20% discount for online Employee Harassment Prevention Training, and online Manager/Supervisor Harassment Prevention Training. CalChamber makes it easy to train all your employees and managers to meet your California compliance obligations. More details.

pexels-anna-shvets-4226215.jpgDon’t Get Duped by Unsolicited Unemployment Payments
By District Attorney Summer Stephan
The figure is astounding – more than $11 billion in unemployment funds bilked from the state’s Employment Development Department. Greedy cheaters and prisoners lied about who they were to receive benefits as claims soared amid the pandemic. At the same time, we saw deserving recipients of EDD struggle to get their much-needed payments. My office is working hard to bring accountability to prisoners who stole money through fraud. In the meantime, we want to provide you with information to keep you safe from becoming a victim of fraud. More details.
