California’s COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Law: No Longer Effective, but Employers Beware

On September 9, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom enacted a law requiring all California employers with more than 500 employees, as well as certain industries exempted from the Families First Coronavirus Recovery Act (FFCRA), to provide up to 80 hours of supplemental paid sick leave to employees for COVID-related reasons. This law was set to sunset on the later of December 31, 2020, or upon the expiration of any extension of Emergency Paid Sick Leave under the FFCRA. As Congress has not extended the federal Emergency Paid Sick Leave requirements, California’s supplemental paid sick leave requirements are no longer effective as of January 1, 2021.
