After July 1, 2015, employees who work in California for 30 or more days within a year from commencement of employment will accrue paid sick leave at a rate of no less than one hour for every 30 hours worked.
Exempt employees will be deemed to work 40 hours per week for accrual purposes, unless their normal work schedule is less than 40 hours. In such a case, they will accrue paid sick leave based on their normal workweek.
Further, covered employees will be entitled to use accrued paid sick days beginning on the 19th day of employment, after which they may use paid sick days as they are accrued.
Please note that accrued paid sick days carry over to the following year of employer. However, employers may limit an employee’s use of paid sick leave to 24 hours or three days in each year of employment.
