Disaster Service Workers

 

California Government Code (sections 3100-3101) declares that public employees are disaster service workers, subject to such disaster service activities as may be assigned to them by their superiors or the law. The term "public employees" includes all persons employed by the state or any county, city, city and county, state agency or public district, excluding aliens legally employed. This law applies to public school employees in the following cases: 1) when a local emergency has been proclaimed; 2) when a State emergency has been proclaimed; or 3) when a federal disaster declaration has been made.
