California Employers must provide All employees PAID SICK Time

Posted on September 5, 2014 by Rick Rossignol

Life just got a little more complicated for employers! Employers have to provide Part-time and temporary workers up to three paid sick days a year.

Beginning July 1, 2015, every employee, whether full time or part-time, who is employed in California for 90 days or more will be entitled to accrue paid sick leave at the employee’s regular rate of pay of no less than one hour for every 30 hours.

The bill would authorize an employer to limit an employee’s use of paid sick days to 24 hours or 3 days in each year of employment. The employer has no obligation under this section to allow an employee’s total accrual of paid sick leave to exceed 48 hours or 6 days, provided that an employee’s rights to accrue and use paid sick leave under this section are not otherwise limited. The bill would prohibit an employer from discriminating or retaliating against an employee who requests paid sick days. The bill would require employers to satisfy specified posting and notice and record-keeping requirements.
