MANDATED PAID SICK LEAVE

Time for employers with staff in California to review and up-date their paid time off policies. Effective July 1, 2015, employers must provide paid sick leave to employees (full time, part time and temporary employees) who work 30 or more days within a year. All such workers will earn one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked.

Interestingly, the only employees not covered by this requirement are home health aides working with the elderly and with people with disabilities (roughly 363,000 employees) who are paid through the state’s In-Home Supportive Services network; which would have increased costs to the State of California).
