San Diego Issues Required Postings, Acknowledgement Form under Earned Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinance
The City of San Diego’s Earned Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinance went into effect on July 11, 2016. Beginning October 1, 2016, employers must post two new notices in the workplace and give employees and new hires a notice containing certain employer information. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in significant civil penalties.
In addition, all employees (both exempt and nonexempt) who work in the City of San Diego must receive an individual employee notice. New employees hired to work in the City also must receive an individual notice as part of their new hire paperwork.
The City provides the notices in English and other languages. Employers with operations in San Diego should seek legal guidance to ensure compliance with the new requirements.
