California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
California does not require employers to provide their employees (hourly or salaried) sick time (paid or unpaid). If the employer has at least 50 employees in a 75 mile radius, employees that have worked there at least 12 months and for 1250 hours in the past 12 months are entitled to 12 weeks unpaid leave for medical issues. But other than that, there is no right, under state or federal law, for an employee to have any sick leave. If the employer chooses to provide it as a benefit, then they have to implement it in a non-discriminatory manner, but there's no requirement that they provide it in the first place.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX good luck to you!
