Proposed trailer bill language would extend California COVID paid sick leave!
AGC California has learned that the legislature is negotiating trailer bill language that would extend COVID sick leave past the existing September 30th sunset.
Please contact your State Senator and Assemblymember to tell them how unfair it is for employers, to once again, shoulder the burden of financing another round of COVID sick leave.
COVID sick leave should be allowed to expire on the planned sunset of September 30th, and if employers are forced to grapple with another extension, it is unacceptable to have businesses shoulder the financial burden of another round of paid sick leave.
The Governor has already recognized that COVID-19 is moving to endemic status and has become a routine part of our lives. Since 2020 employers have been required to pay COVID leave three different times, totaling up to 240 hours per employee. Unlike in 2020 and 2021, and despite a record surplus in California, there were no tax credits provided to offset employer costs of the current 2022 sick leave extension.
