Hospitality workers in California who lost their jobs during the pandemic will get priority for new roles with their former employers, per a statewide bill Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Friday.

Any companies breaking the rules could face a $100 fine and be forced to pay an eligible former employee $500 a day.
