Example 3: You work in a non-essential business and, as such, you are required to stay home because of California’s and/or San Diego’s stay home orders relating to COVID-19. However, you can telework from home. But you are responsible for caring for a child whose school or place of care is closed (or childcare provider is unavailable) for reasons related to COVID-19, making it unfeasible for you to telework. Under this circumstance, you would most likely be eligible for job-protected paid leave under the new Families First Coronavirus Response Act. See our blog post here to learn more about your rights under this act. If your employer is requiring you to work despite this circumstance, and fires you for refusing to work, the firing may be unlawful.
