A monthly update from the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce

We have been working hard to keep you informed about the latest news, to advocate for you and to serve as a resource.  We will continue to represent the interests of our members at the local, state and federal level.  

We have plenty of important updates to share with you this month.

State Legislature Wraps Up Session:
Key Bills Impacting Business Go To Governor

The California Legislative Session has now ended. The Chamber is pleased to report success on bills we opposed, including:

  • AB 398 (Chu) – this bill would have imposed a headtax on employees for companies over a certain size but “died” in the legislature.
  • SB 1399 (Durazo) could have imposed liability in certain situations on clothing retailers for the acts of manufacturers but did not make it through the legislature

Several bills the Chamber has opposed have passed the legislature and will now be reviewed by the Governor:

  • Oppose SB 1383 (Jackson) which would require companies to provide 12-weeks of leave for companies with over five employees.
  • Oppose AB 3216 (Kalra) which would require hotels and other businesses to recall laid off employees in a certain order and effectively imposes public civil service rules on the private sector.

We urge you to contact California Governor Gavin Newsom via phone at 916.445.2841 and to submit letters by fax to 916.558.3160 to express your oppositions to these two bills.

Beverly Hills City Council Approves Request by Chamber to Extend Cap on Online Delivery Service Fees

Following a request by the Chamber, the City of Beverly Hills has extended a cap on online delivery service fees. Online delivery service companies have been charging fees of 30 percent or more on restaurants for online delivery services. The current cap limits fees to 15% of the total purchase price plus no more than 5 percent of any other combination of fees. The Chamber is proud to support our local restaurants and limit fees that had been a burden on restaurants during this difficult time.
