WHAT’S NEW IN 2021
ONE-STOP COVID SHOP
New California Website and Employer Portal

 

The California Labor & Workforce Development Agency (LWDA) has launched a new website   consolidating COVID resources previously only available through separate state and local online websites including:

  • new laws;
  • online prevention training;
  • Cal/OSHA’s emergency temporary standards;
  • testing information;
  • identifying symptoms;
  • information about employee benefits;
  • paid sick leave; and
  • immediate steps to take after a workplace exposure.

The site also includes an employer portal, a one-stop hub for California employers. After the employer anonymously answers questions on its location, industry business and current COVID-19 related practices, the portal generates a tailored “road map” containing a list of relevant links to current state and local COVID industry guidance to operate safely and lawfully.

Labor Secretary Julie A. Su commented, “We recognize that in a public health crisis, guidelines and best practices are evolving.  That’s why we created a central navigation hub where employers can find the latest information.” 

LWDA will update the portal on an ongoing basis.  To encourage its use, the agency notes the site “is for educational purposes and will not be used for state enforcement activities.”
