Beginning July 1, 2015, California employers will be required to grant paid sick leave to nearly all California employees in compliance with California’s new paid sick leave law, the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014. The law applies to all employers who employ at least one employee who works in California for at least 30 days in a given year, and covers any such employee, including part-time, temporary, and/or seasonal employees. The law includes rules regarding accrual rates, carryover of unused time, usage, payment (including amounts and timing), notices to employees, workplace posters, recordkeeping and retaliation.
For more information on the requirements of the new California law, please refer to our California Employment Law Blog.
