Orange County Register

Chapman University economist James Doti expected a dour 2023: a recession, fewer jobs and falling home prices. Relatively speaking, he batted zero for three.

California's New Laws for 2024 Include Increased Minimum Wage, Paid Sick Leave, Reproductive Leave, In-Person Work Notices, and Employee Cannabis Use

The California State Legislature passed a number of bills this year that Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law that will take effect on January 1, 2024. The minimum wage increases to $16 per hour. For health care workers, the minimum wage increases to $23 per hour. Minimum paid sick leave increases to 40 hours per year or 5 days per year. Employers are required to offer unpaid reproductive leave (or reproductive leave using time from sick leave, vacation pay, or paid time off) for a failed adoption, failed surrogacy, miscarriage, stillbirth, or an unsuccessful assisted reproduction, not to exceed one incident per employee per year. An employer must provide 30-day advance notice when requiring a work-from-home employee to return to in-person work. If an employee uses cannabis away from the workplace and on non-work time, then an employer may not consider the cannabis usage in hiring, termination, any term or condition of employment, or employee discipline, unless required by federal law; however, an employer may continue to prevent an employee from possessing cannabis, being impaired by cannabis, or using cannabis on the job.
