Covid Workplace Rights

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic seems as though it is here to stay, at least in the short term. As such, it is important that employees know their rights at the workplace as it pertains to Covid-19.

Pertinently, on September 17, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 685 into law, enacting Labor Code section 6409.6, among other things. Labor Code section 6409.6 requires employers, within one business day of receiving notice of a potential Covid-19 workplace exposure from a “qualifying individual”, to notify employees of the exposure. The law went into effect on January 1, 2021. Here are some common questions we receive about Labor Code section 6409.6.

Q: Who is a “qualifying individual”?

Q: What qualifies as notice of a potential exposure to Covid-19?

Q: Upon receiving notice of potential exposure to Covid-19, who must the employer notify of the exposure and what must they say?

Q: How must notice of exposure be given to employees?

Q: Must the employer notify a union?

Q: Can my employer reveal that I am the “qualifying individual”?

Q: What should I do if there is a Covid-19 outbreak at my workplace?

Q: Does Bibiyan Law Group handle cases for violation of Labor Code section 6409.6?

Came to this Law Firm for unlawful termination and senior prejudice along with coworkers, including that were furloughed then terminated. I came to know of this firm through Howard Thomas. Though it did take approximately two years, the outcome was to my satisfaction.
