Yes – You heard correctly. SB93 that became effective April 16, 2021, requires some hospitality employers who are hiring for “open positions” to first make written job offers to “Qualified” employees who were laid off due to Covid-19. This law applies to hotels with 50 or more guest rooms, as well as some event centers, private clubs with 50 or more guest rooms, airport hospitality operations, airport service providers and commercial building service providers. Employees are eligible for recall if they were employed for six months or more in 2019, performed at least two hours of work er week for a covered employer and were separated from active service due to a reason related to the Covid-19 pandemic, including a public health directive, government shutdown order, lack of business, a reduction in force or other economic, non-disciplinary reason related to the pandemic.
