California Supplemental Paid Sick Leave (CSPSL) configuration guidance
SummaryConfiguration guidance for all customers with greater than 500 employees in the United States to provide supplemental paid sick leave.
On September 9, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1867 (“AB 1867”), which is intended to fill gaps left by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”). The new law requires that private employers with 500 or more employees in the United States provide eligible (non-food sector) employees with up to 80 hours of supplemental paid COVID-19 sick leave (“Supplemental COVID-19 Leave”). This became Section 248.1 of the California Labor Code.
COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave must be provided to all employees who leave their homes or place of residence to perform work and who work for employers that have 500 or more employees nationwide under the new law (Labor Code section 248.1). This means that all employees who work for employers who have 500 or more employees nationwide can receive COVID-19 related supplemental paid sick leave under California law.
