Paid Sick Leave
On September 10, 2014, California became the second state in the nation, after Connecticut, to provide paid sick leave when Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed AB 1522, the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014 (the Act).
Employers must begin providing the paid sick leave benefit starting July 1, 2015. Other requirements, such as posting and notice obligations, took effect January 1, 2015. Other adjustments (including CalChamber-suggested changes) went into effect on July 13, 2015.
