AUTOMATING COMPLIANCE WITH CALIFORNIA AB-685 REPORTING OBLIGATIONS
The new California Law AB-685 requires public and private employers to provide written notice of COVID-19 exposure in the workplace, and empowers CAL/OSHA to shut down worksites posing “imminent hazard”.
AB-685 becomes effective January 1, 2021, and employers are urged to immediately review their COVID-19 related process and procedures to ensure they are compliant. Of critical importance, workforce notices, must be circulated within one business day. As such, it is essential that organizations have their workforce notice and exposed workforce identification processes (Contact Tracing) in place ahead of January 1, 2021.
