With the increase to minimum wage effective January 1, 2021, are employers required to provide employees with a new Employee Change of Status Form to reflect the pay increase?

We know that as of January 1, 2021, California is expanding the number of employees that qualify for protected leave under the California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”). We also know the CFRA is expanding the definition of “family member.” We have over 50 employees and we have a server whose sister is sick and wants to take leave to care for her. We have two questions: (1) Does the FMLA or CFRA currently cover this situation? and (2) After January 1, 2021, would the employee be eligible for any leave under the revised CFRA?

We are now required to take temperatures of our employees right after they clock in to work. If the employee has a fever, we know we have to send them home. My question is do we need to pay them for 1/2 their shift if we send them home due to having a fever?

Restaurants benefit from allowing patrons to open a tab. Aside from the potential for increased ordering, the process speeds up efficiency at the bar. The problem comes at the end of the night when credit cards are left unclaimed.

I was wondering if the CRA might have some information about industry practices for mileage reimbursement, car allowance and/or gas cards. Thank you!
