Foster Farms, temp agencies fined $3.8 million over sick pay – Los Angeles Times

“Workers should not have to worry about financial hardship if they need to take care of themselves or a family member who is COVID positive,” Labor Commissioner Lilia García-Brower said in a release. “That’s what supplemental paid sick leave is for — it keeps sick workers at home and protects against the spread of COVID-19.”

The department did not say whether any of the temporary workers had contracted COVID-19 and missed work. Regardless, the $3.8 million in fines will be delivered to the workers.
