If there’s something wrong with how your workplace is handling COVID protocols, who do you call? The California Department of Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also known as Cal/OSHA. This state agency is tasked with providing protections for workers on the job, but critics say Cal/OSHA has fallen short on enforcement. Jackie Botts has been covering this issue for CalMatter’s California Divide collaboration and she joined Elizabeth to explain what the agency is supposed to do and how it’s fallen short.
Also, another state agency is under fire for its handling of unemployment claims during the pandemic. CalMatters’ Lauren Hepler has an update for Nicole on the California Employment Development Department and we’ll hear from CalMatters’ Nigel Duara about what the extension of the eviction moratorium means for renters and landlords.
