California’s Labor Commissioner Issues Required Poster & FAQ Regarding New COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave

On the anniversary of California’s statewide shelter-in-place orders, Governor Newsom signed legislation bringing back the statewide COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave.

The new statute requires employers to display a required poster issued by the California Labor Commissioner and which the Labor Commissioner issued on March 22, 2021. Like prior required posters, the notice includes covered leave reasons and the amount of time eligible employees are entitled. If employees do not frequent the workplace, employers may satisfy the notice requirement by disseminating via electronic means, including e-mail. The statute provides a 10-day grace period until March 29, 2021, for employers to comply but should disseminate or display the poster as soon as feasible.

The Labor Commissioner, also quickly released a Frequently Asked Questions page, regarding the new COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave. It includes information on:

  • Coverage

  • Reasons for Taking Leave

  • Start Date and End Date of the Statute

  • Requesting Leave from an Employer

  • Calculating Leave Entitlement

  • Credits Against Entitlement

  • Record-keeping and Paystubs

  • Enforcement

  • Relation to Other Laws
