Labor Law Update: Paid Sick Leave

19
Jul,2016

Effective as of July 1, 2016, businesses with employees within The City of San Diego (check city limits here) are required to provide 40 hours – the equivalent of five days – of paid sick leave. This is an increase from the previous ordinance of 24 hours (three days). Take note of this change in the labor law, and make sure this is enacted throughout the organization.

Remember that paid sick leave varies from city to city, and is not a county-wide ordinance. The chart we pulled together below shows what the City of Los Angeles requires of employers vs. Santa Monica, which is within Los Angeles County. It gets tricky, so check with your Human Resources Department to stay in compliance. Best of luck!
