California Governor Gavin Newsom, nephew of US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, last week signed Senate Bill 93 into law. The new law, remarkably similar to AB 3216, a bill he just vetoed last September because in the words of his veto message, its requirements would place “too onerous a burden on employers navigating . . .” the tough challenges presented as they try to survive the coronavirus pandemic. The good news is that the law does not apply to restaurant employees, but the bad news is that the precedent is established. The Right-to-Recall law, which applies to hotels, private clubs, event centers, airport hospitality operations, airport service providers, and building services to office, retail, or other commercial buildings, mandates that certain employers must offer vacant position to laid-off employees who qualify (deemed to if they held the same or similar position) and must give them 5 business days to respond to such offer of reemployment. The law also mandates that covered employers must maintain specific employee contact and employment information for a period of three years. The law has a December 31, 2024 sunset date. Several cities and counties in California (Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Diego, among them) had previously enacted local right to recall ordinances, so the idea is trending.
