California Labor Commissioner Issues Required Postings for New Paid Sick Leave Law

The California Labor Commissioner recently issued the Paid Sick Leave poster template and Wage Notice for employers to use as of January 1, 2015 in compliance with California’s new paid sick leave law, AB 1522.  Employers do not need to use these documents in their workplace, but if they create their own posters and notices, the information must be the same.   Employers can find the Labor Commissioner issued posting here and the Wage Notice here.

Although the posting and wage notices are to be used as of January 1, 2015, employees’ entitlement to paid sick days does not go into effect until July 1, 2015.  For legal guidance on implementing the new law contact Jennifer Phillips by clicking here.
