The Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) has published a model employee notice providing important details of the newly enacted COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Bill (AB 84). The DLSE has also published helpful FAQs interpreting the 2022 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law.
AB 84 goes into effect on February 19, 2022 and requires employers with 26 or more employees to provide up to 80 hours of COVID-19-related supplemental paid sick leave. Employers must provide notice of AB 84 by distributing the notice to remote employees by email with the notice attached and also physically display the notice within its existing workspace.
The DLSE will be publishing FAQs soon. Employers should continue to monitor the DLSE for notices and updated information.
Members with questions about AB 84 should contact Western Growers.
