See partial answer above.
Under CA law, there is no requirement that an employee be given the right to cash out any unused sick days like they can with vacation time. So, if your employment policy does not provide for that, you would, for this salary-based employee, pay her only the converted daily rate of $115.00 for a day where she takes sick leave and $0.00 for regular pay.
