Paid Sick Leave
California’s Paid Sick Leave law, which came into effect in 2015, provides for paid time off from your employer that can be used for COVID or non-COVID related illnesses, or preventive care for you or your family member and if you are a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. Most workers are entitled to paid sick leave, earning one hour of paid leave for every 30 hours worked. The sick leave that employers are required to provide may be capped at 24 hours or three days per year, whichever is more by a policy communicated to you.
To qualify for sick leave, a worker must work for the employer for at least 30 days within a year and complete a 90-day employment period before taking any sick leave. Additional information on how it applies to COVID-19
Local COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave
Certain municipalities also have local paid sick leave laws. If workers are subject to a local sick leave ordinance, the employer must comply with both state and local laws, which may differ in some respects. The employer must provide the leave amount that is most generous to the worker. Workers should consult with the relevant local enforcement agency for the locality in which they work for more information.
