SPF MEMO: New Sick Leave Law for California Employees

Sponsored Programs Foundation

At the end of last year, the “Healthy Workplace Healthy Family Act of 2014 (AB 1522)” was passed in California. The purpose of this bill was to guarantee every California worker is paid time off to recover from illness, care for a sick family member, or bond with a new baby. In accordance with California state law AB 1522, sick leave with pay will now be granted to all Categories of SPF Employees. Sick leave varies based on your appointed Category as described below: “Category A or B” employees will continue to accrue sick leave at a rate proportional to their appointed time base. This new law will not affect how Category A & B employees accrue their sick leave as currently outlined in the SPF Personnel Manual. “Categories C, D, and E” will now be granted sick leave in accordance with California state law AB 1522.
