Employer Compliance Alert: California Mandates Paid Sick Leave for Employees

California Mandates Paid Sick Leave for Employees: Download the Compliance Bulletin from CBG Benefits TodayOn Sept. 10, 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014.

Beginning on July 1, 2015, employers will be required to provide paid sick days to employees who work 30 or more days in a calendar year.

If this law applies to your business, here are a few key points to note:

  • All California employers must comply, including small businesses
  • Employers must provide paid sick leave to part-time and temporary workers, not just full-time employees
  • Employers will be required to provide eligible employees with 24 hours (or three workdays) of paid sick leave per year.

In addition, as part of the implementation of this law, employers must take action to satisfy administrative requirements. This includes providing written notice to employees regarding the amount of paid sick leave available, displaying a poster that informs employees of their rights, and maintaining records that document the hours worked and paid sick days accrued and used by each employee for at least three years.

We hope that you find this summary helpful.
