Legal Changes You Need to Know Before January 1st


Churches will need to adhere to new legal changes beginning January 12, 2021. Recent OSHA and AB-685 guidelines will directly affect your organization. We will cover all the requirements and policies you need to know about in our upcoming webinar, this Tuesday, December 15th. Join us to hear from an expert on putting together a model program and guidance.

Here’s what we’ll discuss:

AB 685 – New Employer Obligation for workplace infections and workplace exposures, including obligatory noticing, notice timing, workers compensation notifications, and cleaning requirements.

OSHA – Provides definitions of exposure, high-risk exposure periods, newly mandated COVID-19 prevention programs may be added to injury illness and prevention plans, communications requirements, accommodation noticing requirement, identification, and evaluations of COVID-19 hazards, and mandated provided testing.
