As Humboldt County employers conduct their annual employee handbook reviews, be sure to remember that California now requires all employers to provide three days (24 hours) of paid sick leave. Effective July 1, 2015, the new sick leave law applies to all employees—exempt and non-exempt—who work at least 30 days per calendar year in California. (Some exceptions apply for those providing in-home support services and those represented under certain collective bargaining agreements.) Additionally, all employers must inform employees about the new sick leave laws. Contact an attorney experienced in California employment law for questions about accrual, use and implementation.
