Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Legally, under the Affordable Care Act, the employer is supposed to provide an insurance policy only if they employ 50+ employees, but for less than that there is no requirement they do so.

Under AB 1522 (CA Chapter 317). An employee who, on or after July 1, 2015, works in California for 30 or more days within a year from the commencement of employment is entitled to paid sick days for prescribed purposes. Pursuant to the law, employees will earn at least one hour of paid leave for every 30 hours worked, which is slightly more than eight days a year for someone who works full time. But employers can limit the amount of paid sick leave you can take in one year to 24 hours (three days).

The CA law does not mandate an employer pay holiday pay or vacation pay for employees. This is solely at the employer's discretion.

Workers compensation is mandatory for all employers and the employer must provide such coverage.
