California Updates Paid Sick Leave FAQs

FAQs Address Employers' Existing Paid Time Off Policies and Purposes for which Paid Sick Time Must Be Provided

The California Department of Industrial Relations has released updated FAQs addressing California's paid sick leave law.

Under California's paid sick leave law, most employers are required to provide up to 24 hours (or 3 days) per year of paid sick leave to employees who work in California for the same employer for 30 or more days within a year from commencement of employment.

Updated FAQs
The updated FAQs contain answers to questions that are frequently asked about the paid sick leave law, including:

  • The impact of the paid sick leave law on "grandfathered" (i.e., existing) paid time off policies;
  • Methods of calculating the rate of pay for time taken off as paid sick leave through an existing "grandfathered" paid time off policy;
  • The effect of the paid sick leave law on employer attendance polices and circumstances under which employees can be disciplined under those policies; and
  • Purposes for which paid sick days must be provided (i.e., treatment of existing health conditions; preventive care; or for certain purposes when an employee is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking).
