Updates to LA County Codes are Coming!
This information and guidance was suppled by Lewitt Hackman.: The City of Los Angeles is about to enact several ordinances that will directly impact you. One is regarding recall rights for laid off workers and the other is for even more paid sick leave (“Supplemental Paid Sick Leave”).
VICA is attempting to reach out to City Councilmembers to explain how these two ordinances are harmful to City of L.A. employers, especially during this time when so many businesses are already struggling. I am cc’ing Stuart Waldman and Armando Flores from VICA. They will be circulating something about this later today. Please call or email your city councilperson today to provide your feedback.
