Grocery establishment and retail drug establishment employees: self-service checkout and technologies affecting essential job functions.

Abstract

Existing law imposes certain requirements on grocery employers, as defined, upon the purchase or change in control of a grocery establishment, including requiring a successor grocery employer to retain eligible grocery workers for a specified period after transfer of the grocery establishment. This bill would prohibit a grocery establishment or a retail drug establishment, as those terms are defined, from providing a self-service checkout option for customers unless specified conditions are satisfied, including having no more than 2 self-service checkout stations monitored by any one employee and requiring the employee to be relieved of all other duties. The bill would require a grocery establishment or retail drug establishment that offers self-service checkout to include self-service checkout in a specified analysis of potential work hazards for purposes of their injury and illness prevention programs. The bill would require a grocery establishment or retail drug establishment that develops or implements technology that significantly affects the essential job functions or eliminates jobs or essential job functions of its employees, or that enables self-service, to complete a specified assessment before implementing the technology. The bill would require the study to include, among other things, the salaries, benefits, jobs, and work hours that would be eliminated by the workplace technology. The bill would require the grocery establishment or retail drug establishment to notify and solicit input from its employees at least 60 days before drafting the study, to provide the study to employees or their collective bargaining representatives at least 60 days before implementation, and to post a copy of the study in a location accessible to its employees and customers before, and for at least 90 days following, implementation of the workplace technology.
