New Paid Sick Leave Requirements for Los Angeles Employers

September 14, 2016 0 Comment
As of JULY 1ST, 2016, employers within Los Angeles city limits will have to offer DOUBLE the paid sick leave time (48 hours/6 days) that is currently required by state law (24 hours/3 days).
Eligible employees are those who have worked for the same employer for 30 days or more within one year of employment. Employees may take time off for themselves or any individual related by blood or affinity whose close relation with the employee is the equivalent of a family relationship.
Accrual must start on July 1st, 2016, or the start date of employment, whichever is later. Employers have the option of front-loading the paid sick leave days, or allow accrual at the rate of one (1) hour per every thirty (30) hours worked. Employers choosing the accrual method may place a cap at 72 hours or higher. Employers who have a paid leave or paid time-off policy that offers 48 hours or more are NOT required to offer additional time.
