The California Labor Commissioner's Office (LCO) is reminding employers that California's paid sick leave law has been expanded starting on January 1, 2024. Employers must allow workers to use at least 40 hours or five days of paid sick leave per year, an increase from the current 24 hours or three days. Some cities or regions in California may require employers to provide additional sick leave.
The LCO has created an informational Paid Sick Leave factsheet that explains how workers qualify and can use paid sick leave. The fact sheet is also available in Spanish. For more details, review the Paid Sick Leave Frequently Asked Questions.
