On Nov. 30, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) reviewed and approved the temporary emergency COVID-19 regulation proposed by the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Cal/OSHA).  The emergency regulation is effective immediately and will be in effect for 180 days unless OAL approves a re-adoption of the emergency regulation during this time period.

In addition, Cal/OSHA issued guidance with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), which features thirty-one questions and answers for workplace safety. Cal/OSHA also provided a model COVID-19 Prevention Plan and links to additional resources.

For next steps, credit unions should review and consider the effectiveness of their COVID-19 prevention plans and, where necessary, consult their employment law attorneys.
