COVID-19: Maintaining a Safe Workplace
On November 19, 2020, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB) voted to adopt comprehensive new regulations concerning COVID-19 in the workplace.

These regulations require that each employer develop and implement a broad, written COVID-19 prevention program.
Some of OSHSB's emergency provisions are already integrated into previous guidelines, but many are new altogether. Since the regulations are anticipated to go into effect as quickly as November 29, 2020, employers will want to understand their implications as soon as possible.

Local chambers and their members are invited to join us online for an informative 60-minute coffee chat with our compliance experts on December 15th - to "chat" about the new requirements facing employers.

Low value resolution introduced by county 
The Alameda County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution that all real property including possessory interests not more than $10,000 be exempt from property taxation.

"I am thankful to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors for recognizing the assistance this Resolution will provide for small businesses in Alameda County who will be impacted by this change," said Assessor Phong La. "This smart, fiscally sound policy will be particularly helpful to our small businesses who have been so severely impacted by COVID-19. This Resolution was supported by the Hayward Chamber of Commerce, Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce, and the Dublin Chamber of Commerce, as well as many small businesses who understand firsthand it's effect. I thank them all for continuing to fight for small businesses."
