Navigating California’s Local Paid Sick Leave Ordinances in Light of COVID-19

Several cities in California have swiftly enacted emergency ordinances requiring private employers to provide public health emergency leave consistent with the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). The ordinances follow state and local proclamations of a public emergency and the increasingly robust shelter-in-place orders affecting businesses and individuals in response to the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19. We analyzed the San Francisco Public Health Emergency Leave ordinance and the FFCRA in recent Alerts. This Alert identifies developments in other California cities like San Jose, Los Angeles and Emeryville, as well as permissible uses of paid sick leave under the existing laws in Oakland, San Diego and Santa Monica for work absences that are related to COVID-19.
