AB 1074 OPPOSE. AB 1074 would imposes novel, retroactive and unworkable “right of recall” provisions for specified industries that will interfere with and delay covered businesses’ ability to reopen during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. AB 1074 will also subject these businesses to expensive PAGA liability at a time that they can least afford it, further jeopardizing their ability to reopen.
AB 1074 establishes a new “right of recall” requirement that applies to small and large hotels, event centers, airport hospitality operations, or the provision of building services to office, retail, or other commercial buildings. Based on the broad language in the bill, it also applies to any restaurant or store that has a location inside a hotel or event center. These rights further apply when an employer goes out of business and there is a change in control or ownership.
