California's Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) has updated its 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave (SPSL) FAQs  in an effort to address employer concerns about managing the newly enacted leave law.

Although many critical issues were initially addressed by the DIR in February 2022 when the new SPSL law took effect employers should review the updated FAQs to confirm compliance and proper processing of SPSL.
