CHA has released a toolkit to help hospitals comply with the COVID-19 workplace notice requirements in a new California law — Assembly Bill 685 — that takes effect Jan. 1, 2021.
The law, which is enforced by Cal/OSHA, requires employers to notify employees that they may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the workplace. The toolkit covers key provisions of the law and includes a sample notice for employees.
While CHA convened a member workgroup to develop the toolkit to address the law’s most relevant components and issues, it is not legal advice and hospitals are encouraged to consult with counsel on any questions or concerns. CHA has also developed an on-demand educational video that provides a summary of the law.
