With new labor laws and regulations being enacted each year, staying up to date and compliant is always a challenge for HR management. And this is true for sick leave policies in California.
Surprisingly to some, unlike most other developed countries, the federal government here in the U.S. does not require paid family or sick leave. The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) does require eligible employers to provide unpaid family leave. But paid family leave and paid sick days are only required on the state and local levels.
