Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Employer's Frequently Asked Questions

The Department of Industrial Relations ("DIR"), California's umbrella enforcement agency for employment related laws, recently issued a set of frequently asked questions ("FAQ") to guide employers navigating the fallout of Coronavirus ("COVID-19"). Here is a summary of the DIR's guidance:

Frlekin v. Apple, Inc. - Exit Search? That Could Cost You.

Do your employees spend time waiting for and undergoing entry and exit searches? If so, there is new authority that may impact your time and attendance policies. Earlier this month, the California Supreme Court decided Frlekin v. Apple, Inc. ("Frlekin"). "Is time spent on the employer's premises waiting for, and undergoing, required exit searches of packages, bags, or personal technology devices voluntarily brought to work purely for personal convenience by employees was compensable as 'hours worked' within the meaning of Wage Order 7?"
