Oakland’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave Ordinance Poster Now Available

On June 19, 2020, the City of Oakland, California, published a notice poster for employers to provide to their employees regarding Oakland’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave Ordinance. As we previously discussed in our summary of the ordinance, covered employees may use up to 80 hours of emergency paid sick leave for COVID-19-related purposes. Under the ordinance, employers must immediately disseminate the notice so that it “reach[es] all employees, including, but not limited to, posting in a conspicuous place at the workplace; via electronic communication; or posting in a conspicuous place in an Employer’s web-based or app-based platform.” The ordinance also requires employers to include translations of the notice in all languages spoken by more than 10 percent of employees. The notice is now available with translations in SpanishVietnamese, and Chinese.
