In response to the COVID-19 emergency and stay-at-home orders, Mayor Eric Garcetti signed two new ordinances into law.  Both ordinances will become effective on June 14, 2020.

The Right to Recall Ordinance dictates rehire protocol to select employers, providing guidelines based on seniority for select employers that laid off workers during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Worker Retention Ordinance requires that employers in the same select industries provide seniority preferences to workers in the event of a change in business ownership or control within two years of the City of Los Angeles’s COVID-19 emergency declarations.
