Random Length News: State Legislature Passes Two Bills by Senator Gonzalez
SACRAMENTO — The State Legislature Sept. 10, approved SB 606 – Workplace Safety Enforcement by Senator Lena A. Gonzalez (D-Long Beach) which would implement stronger enforcement measures for egregious and flagrant violations in order to keep workers safe, especially as California continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
“During this pandemic, workers in all industries have bravely contributed their time and labor to keep our economy going despite the unprecedented challenges we have faced and all of them deserve to have a safe working environment now and in the future. We must prioritize worker safety as we continue to reopen our economy and protect workers from large corporations who have a complete disregard for their wellbeing. We can achieve this by giving Cal/OSHA the resources it needs to hold employers accountable for health and safety workplace violations via SB 606,” Senator Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach) said.
