On September 10, 2014, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1522 which provides workers with three paid sick days per year. The new law, entitled the “Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014,” requires California employers to provide employees with one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked starting on July 1, 2015.  The law contains no exemption for agricultural, seasonal, temporary or part-time employees.
