SB 93 Creates Right to Recall for Certain Qualified Employees of Specified Employers

On April 16, 2021, the Governor signed Senate Bill 93, requiring certain employers to offer positions to certain laid-off employees who are qualified, based on a preference system, through December 31, 2024. The bill defines “laid-off employee” as any employee who was employed for six or more months in the 12 months preceding January 1, 2020, and whose most recent separation was due to a reason related to the COVID-19 pandemic. SB 93 defines “employer” and “enterprise” broadly and covers a hotel, private club, event center, airport hospitality operation, airport service provider, or the provision of building services to office, retail, or other commercial buildings.
