Earlier this week the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement or “DLSE” posted an updated FAQ document to address changes to California’s Paid Sick Leave (“PSL”) law. The changes to the law – which became effective in July 2015 shortly after the original law went into effect – were discussed in a prior SHLC Blog Post, and can be found here: https://suttonhague.com/july-13-2015-governor-signs-bill-amending-california-paid-sick-leave-law/.
The new FAQ covers many topics and questions concerning PSL, including:
- PSL eligibility and use.
- Accrual methods and lump-sum allotment.
- Carry-over and reinstatement of unused PSL.
- Calculating payments for PSL.
The FAQ can be found on the DLSE website: https://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSE/Sick_Leave_Law_FAQs.pdf.
