The 2015 Paid Sick Leave Curve Ball

California is at is again throwing yet another curve ball at the paid sick leave requirements.

On July 13, 2015, the Governor signed another bill into law (AB 304) changing some of the paid sick leave requirements effective immediately. Don’t kill the messenger.  Here are the changes: News Flash Paid Sick Leave.

In a nutshell, we recommend looking at your brand spanking new sick leave policy to see if it will still work best for your operations given some of these changes.

You may want to once again merge your PTO if you separated sick and other PTO, and you may also want to change up your accrual method to the new option. Of course, you will want to let your administrative folks know that they don’t have to worry about documenting why someone is using sick leave.
