AB 1522 – Employee Paid Sick Leave (CC)

On September 10, 2014, the Governor signed AB 1522 which added California Labor Code §§ 245 through 248.5 and amended Labor Code § 2810.5. Effective July 1, 2015, AB 1522 requires that all employers, including school districts, community college districts and county offices of education, provide at least 24 hours or 3 days of paid sick leave per year to employees who work for 30 or more days in a school or calendar year. The paid sick leave will accrue at a rate of no less than one hour for every 30 hours worked and the employees will be entitled to begin using the sick leave after the 90th day of employment.
