California Unveils Reopening Plan: How Do Restaurants Fit In While the State Comes Out of COVID-19
California Unveils Reopening Plan: How Do Restaurants Fit In While the State Comes Out of COVID-19

Following his announcement that the state has made sufficient progress to begin the process of gradually reopening workplaces which were not designated as essential, California Governor Gavin Newsom released the first stages of a plan that will permit certain lower-risk businesses to begin the careful climb back to work. The governor was quick to point out that the state is not out of the woods yet, but some employers were able to reopen their doors to a certain extent as soon as Friday, May 8 – provided they follow strict safety protocols.  What do restaurants need to know as we head towards Stage 2 of the state’s recovery plan?


This webinar will address some of the some of the key legal issues facing employers as businesses start re-opening and stay-at-home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic expire. It is important to understand what your legal rights and obligations are as you develop your plans for resuming business post-COVID-19. Alden Parker will discuss the legal perspective specific to mid-market employers in California and answers questions, including: 

•    Can I tell someone who’s been in contact to stay home?
•    Can I temperature test my people as they come back to work?
•    Can I do health screens of employees and customers?
•    What capacity limitations will my dine-in service have?
•    Are there other safety and sanitation requirements I will have to adhere to?
•    What if my employee still says they don’t feel comfortable coming back yet?  

Join Alden Parker, Co-Chair of Fisher Phillips’ Hospitality Practice Group as he discusses these topics and more.
