As previously covered, California reinstated and expanded COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave last week. For more on the law’s requirements, click here.
The new law requires employers to give employees notice of the leave benefit:
- The California Labor Commissioner has issued a model poster available here and FAQs are available here.
- The poster must be displayed in a conspicuous location in the workplace, such as in a breakroom or near employee time clocks.
- If employees do not frequent the workplace, employers may distribute the notice by electronic means.
- The new obligations are effective March 29, 2021, and so we recommend distributing the notice and displaying it as soon as feasible.
