Some, But Not All, California COVID-19 Laws Will Sunset at the End of 2023
Some, But Not All, California COVID-19 Laws Will Sunset at the End of 2023

California’s COVID-19 notice requirements under California Labor Code § 6409.6, requiring employer notice to employees of COVID-19 exposures in the workplace, will expire at the end of 2023.

However, although these state notice requirements will expire, under Cal/OSHA’s COVID-19 non-emergency regulations, employers must still notify employees and independent contractors who had a close contact with a COVID-19 case, as well as any employer with an employee who had a close contact, as soon as possible.  Local health department requirements may also apply.

The end of 2023 will also mean the end of California’s presumption that any employee COVID-19-related illness under certain prescribed conditions was work-related for purposes of awarding workers’ compensation benefits.
