The new California paid sick leave law — which requires that all employees, including part-time employees, receive a minimum of paid sick leave per year and requires employers to track sick leave accrual and use — takes effect on July 1. Employers should review their existing leave, notice and tracking policies and procedures to ensure that they are in compliance with the new law, particularly with regard to part-time or other workers not traditionally eligible for employment benefits. Employers who maintain non-accrual, discretionary time off policies should also review their policies and practices for compliance with the tracking requirements of the new law.
