Special Alert: California Reinstates Expanded Version of its COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave

Mar 18, 2021 | Related Attorney Michael S. Kalt | Topic: Employment

On March 18, 2021, the California Legislature passed a budget bill (AB 84/SB 95), which:

  1. Largely reinstates California’s supplemental paid sick leave law (AB 1867), which expired on December 31, 2020 -- the same time as the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

  2. Expands this COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave to more employers and allows it to be used for more qualifying reasons; and

  3. Will take effect ten days after Governor Gavin Newsom signs it (which he will likely do very shortly) and will apply retroactively to January 1, 2021 but is only effective through September 30, 2021.

 Each of these items is discussed in greater detail in the link below.
