Recently, the State of California passed Senate Bill 93, a law that requires employers in certain hospitality industries to rehire those employees that were laid off during the pandemic prior to filling the positions with new employees.  Effective immediately, the law compels employers to make offers to its previously laid off employees and to allow the former employees five days to accept the offer.  The law provides strict criteria for the method and manner in which the offers must be made and a failure to comply with this law could lead to stiff penalties for non-compliant businesses.  To ensure your hiring practices comply with this law, be sure to contact the trusted counsel of your choice.
