Private employment: COVID-19: positive test or diagnosis: documentation.


Existing law provides for the regulation and supervision of employment, including compensation, working hours, and various privileges and immunities relating to employment. Existing law authorizes the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement to enforce the Labor Code and all labor laws of the state the enforcement of which is not specifically vested in any other officer, board, or commission. This bill would authorize a private employer to request prescribed documentation of a positive COVID-19 test or diagnosis if an employee reports that the employee has been diagnosed or tested positive for COVID-19 and is unable to work and the employer determines that an employee may be subject to a 14-day exclusion from the workplace as required under certain law or regulations. The bill would require an employer, in requesting documentation pursuant to the bill and in receiving information in response to that request, to comply with existing privacy protections. This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
