Special Action Alert  - Oppose LA City Council's Attempt to Require Companies to Hire and Layoff Based on Seniority
Special Action Alert  - Oppose LA City Council's Attempt to Require Companies to Hire and Layoff Based on Seniority

The below message has been posted with permission from the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce. 

Tomorrow, Friday, March 27th, the Los Angeles City Council is having an emergency remote meeting to consider a new policy to require businesses to lay-off and rehire employees businesses based on seniority.  Under this proposal, businesses need to have “just cause” to terminate an employee, businesses must lay off employees based on seniority and if businesses recall employees it must be done based on seniority.

The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce strongly opposes these proposed laws.  Please see our attached letter.  Businesses across the area are in difficult circumstances and a law that ties their hands even more will exacerbate the problem and represents an unwarranted intrusion into the hiring decisions of the private sector.

Action Required

Please write and call in today to the LA City Council using the following contact information provided by the LA Area Chamber of Commerce.  Please let the Los Angeles City Council know that this is a very difficult time for businesses that are desperately trying to keep their doors open.  Adding additional regulations will only hurt our economy and these businesses.

Sincerely,
Blair Schlecter
VP of Economic Development and Government Affairs
Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce
