Employment Law Alert: California Labor Commissioner Issues Mandatory Workplace Poster on 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave
February 17, 2022
As noted in the firm’s recent Employment Law Alert (“New California Law Mandates Additional COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave”), California employers with 26 or more employees are required to display a mandatory workplace posting regarding employees’ COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave rights. If an employer’s employees do not frequent a workplace, the employer may satisfy the posting requirement by disseminating the notice of these rights electronically (e.g., by e-mail).
The California Labor Commissioner has now published the required poster on its website, which may be accessed here.
We recommend that employers work with their legal counsel to update their COVID-19 leave policies and practices in light of this new law. Employers seeking further guidance may contact any of the firm’s attorneys.
