SB 1159 - New Employer COVID-19 Reporting Requirements

Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 1159 in 2020, creating new reporting obligations for California employers with employees who test positive for COVID-19. The law also created three new labor codes. One impacts California employers who have five or more employees — if a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in the workplace. Our claims and legal experts created a presentation to explain the ins and outs of the new laws.


We’ll discuss:

  • The details of the laws
  • How to report a COVID-19 claim
  • What the “rebuttable presumption” means for employers
