Late on March 30, 2020, Governor Newsom issued an emergency Executive Order waiving strict compliance with 21 various statutory or regulatory deadlines on the basis that complying with those deadlines would prevent mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Included among the actions is a 60 day extension of the training deadlines for state managers, supervisors and CEAs found at Government Code section 19995.4. The order also extends state agency rulemaking deadlines and certain provisions related to state employee discipline and appeals from discipline. The Executive Order allows the Director of the Department of Consumer Affairs to temporarily waive many continuing education requirements and regulations.
The Executive Order delays the move of the Division of Juvenile Justice from the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to the Health and Human Services Agency for one year. The move and establishment of the new Department of Youth and Community Restoration is now scheduled for July 1, 2021.
