New Forms for California Paid Sick Leave Policies

AB 1522, the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014 goes into effect on January 1, 2015 (although paid sick leave accrual does not begin until July 1, 2015). Starting with the new year, employers must comply with AB 1522's notice provisions.

The DLSE has published a new poster template to notify employees of their paid sick leave rights. The notice must be posted in the workplace by January 1, 2015. You can download the poster at this link.

The DLSE has also updated the Labor Code § 2810.5 “Notice to Employee” to include information on employers' paid sick leave policies. This revised "Notice to Employee" must be used starting January 1.
