The California Labor Commissioner recently issued the required posting notifying employees of the new mandatory paid sick leave requirements. A copy of the poster is available here. The notice must be posted on January 1, even though the accrual of sick leave will not begin under the statute until July 1, 2015.
An additional requirement to notify newly hired employees of their sick leave rights on the wage notice form mandated by Labor Code 2810.5 also goes into effect January 1.
We will be reviewing in detail all the provisions of the new sick leave law, along with the other new California employment laws, at our seminar on January 21, 2015. Please contact Jenna DeSmith at (949) 852-1800 if you are interested or would like more information.
