- Supplemental Paid Sick Leave
On February 8, 2022, the Governor signed Senate Bill 114 (“SB 95”) into law. This law requires employers to provide up to 80 hours (for full-time employees and prorated for part-time employees) of COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave (SPSL) to employees who are unable to work or telework due to various qualifying reasons related to COVID-19, with up to 40 of those hours available only when an employee or family member tests positive (with documentation of positive test results required).
The SPSL is effective back to January 1, 2022, and expires on December 31, 2022.
If you took paid leave or unpaid leave on or after January 1, 2022, because you were unable to work or telework for one of the following reasons:
- Caring for yourself: The employee is subject to a quarantine or isolation period related to COVID-19 as defined by an order or guidelines of the California Department of Public Health, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or a local health officer with jurisdiction over the workplace, has been advised by a healthcare provider to quarantine, or is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and seeking a medical diagnosis.
- Caring for a family member: The covered employee is caring for a family member who is subject to a COVID-19 quarantine or isolation period or has been advised by a healthcare provider to quarantine due to COVID-19 or is caring for a child whose school or place of care is closed or unavailable due to COVID-19 on the premises.
- Vaccine-related: The covered employee is attending a vaccine or booster appointment for themselves or a family member or cannot work or telework because they have vaccine-related symptoms or are caring for a family member with vaccine-related symptoms.
- You have tested positive for COVID-19 or you are providing care for a family member who tested positive for COVID-19 (with documentation of test results).
Please see this 2022-COVID19-SPSL poster for more specifics (definition of "family member," hours of leave available, part-time employee leave, etc.) regarding the law.
