The California Labor Commissioner has cited three El Super grocery stores for failing to provide or delaying supplemental paid sick leave to dozens of workers affected by the coronavirus.
Bodega Latina Corp., which operates the El Super chain, was fined more than $447,000 on Thursday for alleged violations affecting 95 workers at El Super stores in Los Angeles, Lynwood and Victorville.
“Supplemental paid sick leave is intended to protect workers from being forced to choose between their health and providing for their families,” state Labor Commissioner Lilia García-Brower said in a statement Tuesday. “These violations expose workers, their families and El Super’s customers to unnecessary health risks.”
