California’s New COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave—Senate Bill No. 95

Snell & Wilmer

Snell & WilmerOn March 19, 2021, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill No. 95 which requires covered employers to provide a new bank of supplemental paid sick leave for certain COVID-19-related reasons. This bill goes into effect 10 days from enactment, on March 29, 2021, and will expire September 30, 20211. This bill is broader in many respects than Assembly Bill No. 1867 which was California’s version of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) and which expired December 31, 2020. Senate Bill No. 95 covers more employers, provides employees more reasons to qualify for supplemental paid sick leave, and may require employers to provide retroactive pay to employees who took unpaid leave for the qualifying reasons on or after January 1, 2021.
