As we have reported in previous newsletters, California has enacted the 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law requiring employers with 26 or more employees provide two separate “buckets” of 40 hours each of paid sick leave for qualifying reasons. The law goes into effect on February 19, 2022.
The California DLSE just released the required COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Poster which should be conspicuously displayed in all workplaces along with all other posters, and for those employees who work remotely, the poster should be sent electronically.
The Labor Commissioner is also expected to publish an FAQ soon and we will keep you informed when that occurs.
As the guidance issued by the state and federal agencies is regularly changing, as is the medical information known about COVID-19, this memo is provided solely as a reference tool to be used for informational purposes and should not be construed or interpreted as providing legal advice related to any specific case or cases.
