Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
There is no law in CA that sick leave be paid upon termination
. Furthermore, when an employee gives 2 weeks notice of quitting, it is up to the employer to accept that 2 week notice or the employer can dismiss the employee any time before the 2 weeks and only has to pay the employee for hours actually worked (not the 2 whole weeks unless there is some written contract to the contrary) and for unused vacation pay, not sick pay. Thus, you can dismiss her prior to the 2 weeks and would not have to pay her sick pay. However, if you keep her on and she presents a legitimate doctor's note you would have to pay sick pay in accordance with your policy.
