San Diego and Los Angeles recently enacted Paid Sick Leave ordinances that are effective July 1, 2016 (Los Angeles employers with 25 or fewer employees do not begin providing Paid Sick Leave benefits until July 1, 2017). These local ordinances contain provisions that are different than the statewide Paid Sick Leave law.
Employees and employers alike need to review company policies to ensure that they comply with both the state and the local law. Review whether you have employees working in a city with a local Paid Sick Leave ordinance. Whichever law, or portion of the law, provides the most generous rights or protections to the employee will apply.
