Pending Legislation Could More Than Double Employer’s Paid Sick Leave Obligation

California Senate Bill (SB) 616 proposes to expand the number of paid sick days California employers must offer to employees from 3 days (24 hours) to 7 days (56 hours). SB 616 will still permit employers to use either the lump-sum or accrual methodology, with some adjustment to the accrual method.

SB 616 would also increase the minimum accrual cap (including carry over). The current minimum accrual cap is 48 hours, or 6 days. The proposed Bill would increase the cap to 112 hours, or 14 days. We will continue to monitor this Bill and provide guidance.
