Los Angeles Launches Paid Sick Leave Policy


Los Angeles launched a paid sick leave policy that applies to all employers as of July 1, 2017. It requires at least 48 hours of paid sick leave provided at the beginning of each year or one hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked. It applies to all employees that “work at least two hours in a particular week in the City of Los Angeles for the same employer for 30 days or more within a year.” It also includes specific requirements for how to calculate pay for the sick leave used.
