Sierra Health Foundation Partners with CWR and other Community Based Organizations on California COVID-19 Workplace Outreach Program

The Center for Workers’ Rights and 52 other organizations throughout the state have partnered with the The California Labor and Workforce Development Agency (LWDA) to be a part of the new California COVID-19 Workplace Outreach Project (CWOP). 

This endeavor seeks to educate workers on their rights to health and safety in the workplace, as well as a method for them to keep up-to-date with all of the information regarding the Covid-19 pandemic vaccine development, availability and employer requirements. We are excited to be a part of this project which ties directly into our vision of furthering workers advocacy for a safe and healthy working environment! 

Since the launch of our Coronavirus Job Protection Helpline in March 2020, CWR has been clearing up confusions about workplace rights during these unprecedented times and providing resources on  health and safety in the workplace, unemployment insurance, paid sick days, and other crucial labor laws impacting workings.  We are glad to join our efforts with other organizations in our region and throughout the state to further expand our education and training of our workers on their rights. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the health and safety protocols in your place of work, or your organization would like a presentation on current COVID 19 workplace protections,  please don’t hesitate to call our Job Protection Helpline at 916-905-1625
