Santa Monica Paid Sick Leave

​​As of January 1, 2017, the City of Santa Monica (the City or Santa Monica) provides mandatory paid sick leave under the City's Minimum Wage Ordinance (the Ordinance). The Ordinance requires you to provide a minimum amount of paid sick leave (the Santa Monica Sick Leave or SMSL) to employees working in Santa Monica.

As of July 1, 2015, California law provides for mandatory paid sick leave under the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act (the State Law). You are required to comply with both the Ordinance and the State Law.

When the two laws differ, you must follow whichever is more generous to employees.​
