In Andersen v. WCAB, a California court of appeal held that the City of Santa Barbara’s sick leave policy discriminated against injured workers in violation of Labor Code Section 132a. The City’s policy required employees who sustained on-the-job injuries to use accrued vacation rather than sick leave when attending medical appointments related to the industrial injuries. The same City policy allowed non-industrially injured employees to use accrued sick leave when attending medical appointments, and thereby preserve their accrued vacation time. We urge California employers to examine their workers’ compensation policies and practices to ensure they do not suffer from similar frailties.
