So you want to reopen your business. Good! What do you need to know before doing so? 

The primary difficulty in determining the potential risk to employers for re-opening businesses in California during the Covid-19 pandemic is the level of uncertainty. There’s the uncertainty that comes with the general facts of the Covid-19 pandemic, of course. But there’s the added uncertainty produced by the dissonance between California’s response to the pandemic and that of the Federal government. 

So, given this uncertainty, what can California employers do to mitigate their risks relating to Covid-19 liability as they re-open? Fortunately, there are a few basic things for employers to bear in mind.
