California Association of REALTORS® Frequently asked Questions about COVID-19 and the Workplace – Guidance for Employers

As the United States and the rest of the world take measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, many people are facing uncertainty and disruption in their lives. In particular, questions about sick leave, working remotely, and other related issues are becoming increasingly common as more and more workplaces adjust business operations.  Although most real estate salespersons are independent contractors under California law, real estate brokerage firms and associations may have staff such as administrative assistants and others who are employees.  This article aims to provide guidance on California and federal labor and employment issues that may arise as we navigate this public health crisis.
