|Recent Opinion Letter Raises Questions Regarding California's Paid Leave Law|
Ford & Harrison LLP
Aug. 24, 2015
"The Act requires employers who elect the 'no accrual or carry-over' option to provide 24 hours or three days of paid sick leave for employees, and requires the 'full amount of leave' to be provided up front. On August 7, 2015, the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) issued an opinion letter interpreting the statutory language as a minimum labor standard, requiring '24 hours or three days' of paid sick leave, whichever is more for an employee. In other words, '24 hours or three days' must be interpreted as alternative but equally applicable so that either standard would not undercut sick leave for any employee."
