Annual Veteran's Day Ceremony

Plan to attend the Virtual Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors’ annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Due to the Coronavirus, this year’s ceremony will be held virtually on Contra Costa TV, available to watch at www.contracostatv.org.

The keynote speaker is Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart winner, Congressman Mike Thompson. Thompson served in combat with the U.S. Army as a staff sergeant/platoon leader with the 173rd Airborne Brigade. He was also an instructor at the Army's Airborne School.

Thompson has been a member of Congress since 1999 and now represents California’s 5th congressional district, which includes all of Napa County and portions of Contra Costa, Lake, Solano, and Sonoma counties. Thompson is a former Co-Chair of the Military Veterans Caucus and worked to end the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

The ceremony will also honor Mike Hoffschneider, who retired from Contra Costa County as a Veterans Service Representative on October 1, 2020. Mike, an Army Veteran, had over 43 years of combined federal and county public service.

Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan Virtual Town Hall

Rebecca Bauer-Kahan, Assemblymember, 16th District Virtual Town Hall

"With the conclusion of the 2020 legislative session, I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish despite the incredible challenges our state faced. My colleagues and I had to make hard decisions but, ultimately, we were able to pass a balanced budget and legislation that represents our district's values and responds to the challenges Californians like you are facing. We passed meaningful legislation to help small businesses, ensure funding for public schools, harden our defenses against wildfires, and advance social and racial justice.

"I would like to invite you to my virtual Town Hall. I will provide an update on the work we have been doing in Sacramento as well as locally over the last year. There will also be an opportunity for Q&A and for you to share your ideas and thoughts as we begin to prepare for the 2021 legislative session. I hope you can join us and I look forward to hearing from you!"

Leave Laws

Leave Laws
The Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County (WDBCCC) in partnership with the California Employers Association (CEA), is sponsoring the "Leave Laws" webinar, on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at 12:00 pm (noon). There is no cost to this webinar.

California Leave Laws are confusing! With over 20 different leave laws and the FFCRA ePSL and eFMLA, how do you know if your company has to provide the leave and/or which of your employees are eligible to take time off work? As employees come back to work after and during quarantine, how do you know what leave someone is eligible to take and how do you document and apply the time off accurately?

After the webinar, you will have a clear understanding of:

• Leave and time off laws governing employers: Pregnancy, Personal Leaves, FFCRA ePSL and eFMLA, Domestic Violence, School Suspension, School Activities, and more...)
• Who is eligible
• Employee’s rights under the law
• Notice requirements
• Effects on PTO, vacation, sick, and wages
• Employer Rights & Responsibilities

Register in advance using link below.

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 12:00 PM thru 01:00 PM
