Chain employer: displacement notice.


Existing law, the California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act, governs mass layoffs, relocations, and terminations. Existing law prohibits an employer, with certain exceptions, from ordering a mass layoff, relocation, or termination at a covered establishment without giving prescribed written notice to the affected employees, the Employment Development Department, the local workforce investment board, and specified local officials. This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to require a chain employer to provide each covered worker and their exclusive representative, if any, a displacement notice.
