2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Poster and Resources
BY STEPHEN FIEGEL, ESQ. - Carmichael, CA
The Labor Commissioner has published a required workplace poster and FAQs on 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave. The new law went into effect on February 19 for employers with 26 or more employees. The goal of the law is to ensure workers in California know their rights and employers have the resources they need to comply with the state’s labor laws. The resources available include:
The Labor Commissioner’s Office in 2020 launched an interdisciplinary outreach campaign, “Reaching Every Californian.” The campaign amplifies basic protections and builds pathways to affected populations so workers and employers understand legal protections and obligations, and the Labor Commissioner’s enforcement procedures. Californians can follow the Labor Commissioner on Facebook and Twitter.
