If your work is not an essential business you are not allowed to go to work and your employer is not allowed to require you to attend except to sustain Minimum Basic Operations as defined in the order.  You may work from home if your work allows.

If you think your employer is violating your rights as an employee you may contact the Department of Industrial Relations – Labor Commissioner at https://www.dir.ca.gov.
