It continues to be our mission to provide uninterrupted exceptional care of our policyholders, their business, and their employees.
Senate Bill (SB) 1159 is a new California law that imposes new mandatory reporting requirements on California employers.
SB 1159 took effect on September 17, 2020, the day it was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom. SB 1159 requires any employer with five or more employees to report to their claims administrator certain information about each California employee who has tested positive for COVID-19 since July 6, 2020, and going forward. The deadline to report this information depends upon the date the employee provided a specimen for testing (the “testing date”).
- If the testing date for an employee is on or after September 17, 2020, you have three business days from your knowledge of testing to report this information.
- Please fill out the form online, or you can download and email it to COVID1159Reporting@thezenith.com
