West's® New York Legal Update

California’s Office of Administrative Law approved California Division of Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (Cal/OSHA) proposed emergency regulations on COVID-19 prevention on November 30, 2020. The Emergency Temporary Standards took effect immediately and require California employers to implement strict workplace safety measures to reduce the risk and transmission of COVID-19. Emergency regulations generally remain in effect for 180 days unless the OAL approves a re-adoption of the regulations during that time period.
