State labor regulators are fining Foster Farms and staffing agencies with which the company worked almost $3.8 million for failing to let temporary workers know they had supplemental paid sick leave available for COVID-19.
The ruling announced Tuesday by the California Labor Commissioner’s Office affects almost 3,500 employees who worked on a temporary basis at the Foster Farms processing plant in Livingston, in Merced County.
The Labor Commissioner’s Office opened an investigation into the company after COVID-19 outbreaks were reported at the plant.
