Supermarkets and other grocery retailers are the primary food providers for California residents. Experienced grocery retail workers have a knowledge of proper health, safety laws and regulations associated with grocery operations, along with an experience-based understanding of the clientele and communities in which they are located. AB 359 protects grocery employees in stores of at least 15,000 square feet that undergo changes of ownership during a 90-day transition period. This not only protects grocery workers from losing their jobs, but sustains the strength and flow of food access throughout the state, especially in places with little to no access to a grocery store.
