Paid Sick Leave

When we get sick, we should not need to worry about losing pay or even our job. In California, all employers are required to provide paid sick leave according to the Los Angeles Minimum Wage Ordinance (MWO). 

The MWO policy began on July 1, 2016 for employers with more than 25 employees, and on July 1, 2017  for employers with 25 or fewer employees.

Paid sick leave must be provided to all employees who work at least two hours in a particular week for 30 days or more within a year and in the City of Los Angeles for the same employer. Paid Sick Leave is accrued over time up to 6 days.
