California is now the second state in the nation that requires employers to provide paid sick leave to employees. Employers should review their policies now and think about how they are going to comply with the new law’s assorted accrual, carryover and use requirements. California’s new sick leave law goes into effect on July 1, 2015.

Hilary Weddell, a lawyer at McManis Faulkner specializing in Employment Law, has explored the two options (accrual v. lump-sum) for providing sick leave, each with different accrual and carryover requirements. The penalties for violating the new law are significant – up to $4,000 per employee, per day. Therefore, employers should review their handbooks and policies and update them accordingly.
