On Sept. 9, the Governor signed into law AB 1867, California’s COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave bill, which goes into effect on Sept. 19. The law is intended to ensure that all employees in California have access to two weeks of supplemental paid sick leave if they are ordered to quarantine or isolate by a health care provider or public health officer, or if they are prohibited from working by their employer due to health concerns related to the potential transmission of COVID-19.
Employers who already provided some type of COVID-19 specific supplemental paid sick leave may take a credit if certain conditions are met. CHA has developed an on-demand educational video to provide an overview of the new law. CHA is also hosting a complimentary, members-only webinar from 10 a.m. to noon (PT) on Oct. 29 to review all labor and employment legislation that was signed this year.
