Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed an executive order freeing employers from some state restrictions governing mass layoffs and employee relocations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The action temporarily suspends requirements that businesses that have employed 75 or more full- and part-time employees in the 12 months give 60 days warning that they plan to terminate a large number of workers. The order instead requires businesses hurt by coronavirus-related conditions to give “as much notice as is practicable” and to tell laid-off and furloughed employees that they may qualify for unemployment insurance.
