The effective date for employers to begin providing mandatory sick leave to all employees is July 1, 2015, or on the first day of employment for new employees – whichever is later.
However, the required poster must be displayed for employees by January 1, 2015.
◾The law applies to all employers, regardless of staff size.
◾All exempt and nonexempt part-time, full-time and temporary employees who have worked in California for 30 or more days are eligible.
◾Part-time and temporary employees who work more than 30 days per year are eligible.
◾The employer can limit an employee from accruing or using the leave for the first 90 days of employment.
◾The employer can limit employees to using no more than three days a year (24 hours).
◾An employer who chooses to provide leave on an accrual basis, no less than one hour for every 30 hours worked, can limit the amount of paid sick leave to 24 hours/three days each year and can cap the total accrual banked by an employee to 48 hours/six days. Keep in mind that both regular and overtime hours are counted toward the employees accrual rate.
◾If the employer already has a policy in place that provides for paid sick leave equal to or greater than the state requirement, there is no requirement to provide additional paid sick days. CDA recommends adding additional language to a practice’s employee manual that indicates that the policy adheres to the state requirements.
◾The employer must provide the employee with a written notice indicating the amount of sick time available to the employee at each pay period. Records of an employee’s hours should be kept for a minimum of three years.
◾If an employee should leave the practice, sick leave does not need to be paid out unless the employer’s policy combines the sick leave and vacation into a paid time off (PTO) policy.
◾Noncompliance can result in fines and state penalties.
The labor commissioner has also released a new Wage and Employment Notice 2810.5 (required since 2012) containing the information related to the right to accrue and use paid sick leave. The notice can be found at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSE/Publications/LC_2810.5_Notice_(Revised-11_2014).pdf
