Labor + Employment
Labor-related issues and regulations
As the second-largest private employer in California, restaurants employ more than 1.4 million workers. Nationally, the workforce amounts to 12.8 million, with projections expecting an additional 1.3 million jobs in the next decade. With such massive employment and job creation power, labor-related issues and regulations at the state and federal levels constantly affect restaurants. While Legal Center resources can assist restaurant operators in navigating existing laws, the CRA’s team of advocates are always watching for new developments in labor-related policies.
