Paid Sick Leave Compliance Resources

FELS Sacramento offices have received numerous telephone calls and emails from FELS Newsletter subscribers and CFBF members requesting assistance with compliance with various aspects of the new Paid Sick Leave (PSL) mandate imposed by AB 1522, passed by the California Legislature in 2014.

Here are some compliance resources that may be of help to you in meeting the basic requirements of the PSL mandate:

Workplace posting and Individual Employee Notification (both available in English and Spanish at this link on the DLSE website.)

  • The posting is required in the workplace to inform workers about the new PSL law.  It should be placed with other workplace informational postings required by other laws, like minimum wage and workplace safety and health information. 
  • The individual employee notice is a revision of the notice employers have been required to provide for several years by "wage theft prevention" legislation passed by the California legislature (Labor Code 2810.5).  The Office of the Labor Commissioner had indicated that employees must be individually notified about PSL using the information provided by this form.  This form is a template provided by the Office of the Labor Commissioner; you are not required to use this exact form, but you are required to provide all the information from the template about PSL.
  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the PSL mandate.  These FAQ may he helpful for employers to understand the Labor Commissioner's expectations for compliance with PSL.
  • FELS Federal & State Employment Notifications Posters & Book include the new workplace postings required by the PSL mandate; you can order posters and books at this link.
