California Grocers Assoc. v. City of LA, No. B206750

By FindLaw Staff on July 31, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Trial court judgment enjoining enforcement of an ordinance requiring purchasers of large grocery stores to employ the prior store's workforce for 90 days is affirmed where the ordinance requires successor grocery employers to employ experienced workers in order to maintain health and safety standards at the store during the transition to new management and thus enters into a field fully occupied by state law, and is preempted by the California Retail Food Code as well as the National Labor Relations Act.
