COVID-19-related emergency rule set to end after Sept. 30.

Until Sept. 30, California requires employers with 26 or more employees to provide their workers up to 80 hours of supplemental paid sick leave (SPSL) for COVID-19 related reasons.

The emergency rule took effect Jan. 1.

Employers must provide this paid time off for employees who need to stay home due to COVID-19 illness or exposure, caring for a family member, a COVID-19 test or vaccine, recovering from side effects, and more.

Employees taking 2021 SPSL as of Sept. 30 may continue to take the leave they are currently on even if the entitlement extends past Sept. 30.

Additional information on the 2021 SPSL is posted on the Labor Commissioner’s webpage.
