California: Changes to San Francisco sick leave ordinance
January 1, 2017
On June 7, 2016, voters in San Francisco approved changes to the city’s paid sick leave ordinance so that is more compatible with the requirements of California state law, although some difference remain. Some of the new changes include:
- employees begin to accrue paid sick leave on the first day of employment
- employee who are rehired by employers within one year of leaving must have their unused sick leave reinstated
- the purposes for which employees can use sick leave were expanded to match those of the state law requirement
The new changes go into effect on January 1, 2017.
