When You Take a Paid Sick Leave, Will You Get Paid as You Normally Do?

When You Take a Paid Sick Leave, Will You Get Paid as You Normally Do

In California, the law requires that an employer provide payment for sick leave taken by an employee no later than the payday for the next regular payroll period after the sick leave was taken.

This does not prevent an employer from making the adjustment in the pay for the same payroll period in which the leave was taken, but it allows an employer to delay the adjustment until the next payroll.

For example, if you did not clock in for a shift and were not paid for it but used your paid sick leave, your employer would have to pay you not later than the following pay period and account for it in the wage stub for that following regular pay period.
