SB 114: COVID Sick Leave is Back!
CORRECTION: In our communication sent yesterday regarding SB 114, we inaccurately noted the number of employees that an employer must have in order for this regulation to apply to them.

Please note that this legislation impacts those employers with more than 25 employees.

All of our resources have been updated with the correct information. We apologize for the error and any confusion it may have caused.
In California, SB 114 has been passed, taking effect on February 19, 2022. Covered employers should take immediate action as the law applies retroactively back to January 1, 2022 and is set to expire on September 30, 2022.

This legislation applies to California employers with more than 25 employees and provides up to 80 hours of COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave (SPSL) that is divided into two separate "buckets" which have different purposes and requirements. While this new regulation is similar to last year's CA Supplemental Paid Leave (SB 95), which expired last September, there are some notable differences.

The below video explains those differences as well as providing details on what California employers need to know about the new SPSL requirements and how you can prepare.
We have also updated our COVID-19 Toolkit to encompass this new regulation and have created several new resources to help you stay organized and compliant, including:
  • COVID SPSL Bank Employee Notice Template
  • COVID SPSL Attendance Reconciliation Template
  • Employee Policy Notification Communication
