Are you a non-California company with employees who work in California from time to time? California’s Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014 (“the Act”) provides for mandatory paid sick leave to any employee working in California for 30 days or more in a year, even if employed by a non-California employer. This includes part-time and temporary workers. Employers of a workforce with sufficient travel and/or work in California should consider a tracking protocol to monitor their employees’ eligibility under the Act to ensure compliance.

Eligibility kicks in after the employee works in California for 30 or more days in a year and accrual begins on the first day of employment or July 1, 2015, whichever is later. For more information on the Act’s requirements and exclusions, please click here.
