The Division of Labor Standards Enforcement’s website has been updated to include Frequently Asked Questions on California’s new Paid Sick Leave law, as well as a revised Wage Theft Prevention Act Notice and workplace poster. Both the Wage Theft Prevention Act Notice and workplace poster are effective January 1, 2015, even though the entitlement to accrue and take paid sick leave does not begin until July 1, 2015. Employers have the option of providing either the updated or current Notice to employees hired before January 1st.  Links to the FAQs, notice and poster can be found on the DLSE’s website’s “What’s New” section at the bottom of its home page. Here’s a link to the home page:  http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/dlse.html.

Have more questions about the law or its implementation? Contact Cindy Filla in the Los Angeles office, Jon Siegel in the Orange County office or Jamerson “Jamie” Allen in the San Francisco office.
