All working people need to be able to stay home if we are sick, care for our family members without fear of being fired, and have the right to return to our jobs once businesses re-open.

AB 3216 helps ensure an equitable recovery by providing a right of recall and retention for long-time workers who have been laid off in the heavily COVID-impacted industries of hotels, airport hospitality, event centers, and building services.
By passing AB 3216, we can prevent temporary COVID-19-related layoffs from being used as an excuse to engage in discrimination or retaliation – or against workers who speak up for public health protections in the workplace.
