California Paid Sick Leave 2024: What You Need to Know


Watch this 1-minute video.

Are you concerned about missing work due to illness and the implications it might have in California? Starting in 2024, there are significant changes coming to paid sick leave laws that you should be aware of.

Understanding Senate Bill 616: More Sick Leave Security

Starting January 1, 2024, Senate Bill 616 will be in effect, offering employees in California increased security for those times when they're under the weather. This new legislation marks a significant shift in employee rights and benefits.

Key Changes in Sick Leave Accrual and Caps

One of the major changes is the increase in the minimum accrued sick leave - from 3 days to 5 days by your 200th day of employment. Additionally, the accrual cap is also getting a boost, going up from 6 days to 10 days. These changes mean more peace of mind for employees during times of illness.
