Paid sick leave

Paid sick leave now available for most California employees.

Effective July 1, 2015, employees throughout California have the right to accrue and take paid sick leave. To be protected by this law, an employee must work at least 30 days within a year in California. Certain employees, such as providers of in-home supportive services, are not covered. Go here for answers to frequently asked questions about the law.

Employees who work in San Francisco already had this right. California law, however, does not preempt San Francisco law. San Francisco’s Office of Labor Standards offers guidance on the interplay between the California and San Francisco laws.
