Are you selling goods in California? Now that so many people are looking for alternate ways to make an income due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, selling goods from home is attracting a lot of people. Depending on the details, you may need a seller’s permit. The CA Dept. of Tax and Fee Administration (CDFTA) has issued an updated publication entitled “Do You Need a CA Seller’s Permit?” Generally, if you make three or more sales in a 12-month period, you are required to have a seller’s permit, even if the sales were made through internet auctions houses or websites or offered through online classified ads.

San Francisco will require public health emergency leave for some employees during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act provides sick leave to employees who are unable to work or telework due to the pandemic, but that law exempts employers with at least 500 workers. The San Francisco ordinance expands the law to cover those larger companies. Those who were full-time workers as of Feb. 25, 2020, will receive 80 hours of paid public health leave, and part-timers will receive the average number of hours he or she works over a two-week period.
