On Apr. 16, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-51-20, (Executive Order) which provides COVID-19 related paid sick leave for “food sector workers” who work for larger employers in the state. The California legislature is now considering codifying those leave requirements with Senate Bill 729.
