The California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement recently posted guidance related to the state’s new paid sick leave law on its website in the form of frequently asked questions. The guidance provides clarification on rehired employees. If an employee is rehired within one year by the same employer, the employee’s previously accrued hours are restored. Additionally, the rehired employee’s 90 day waiting period is waived if they met the requirement during their previous employment period.
The guidance also states that employers are required to provide individualized notice to new employees hired after Jan. 1, 2015. Existing employees must receive a notice by July 8, 2015.
