UPDATE COVID-19 Sick Leave Payable Into October

September 27, 2021 1:31 pm

In an HR Headliner published on September 23, we let you know that federal and state COVID-19 paid sick leave was set to expire on September 30, 2021.

Employers with 26 or more employees should note that under California law, if an employee’s qualifying absence for COVID-19 reasons begins on or before September 30, the employee must be allowed to continue the leave and receive supplemental paid sick leave benefits for up to 10 days. However, the amounts paid from October 1 forward are not eligible for payroll tax deduction.

Please contact one of our Consultants if you have questions regarding the timing of an employee’s COVID-related leave, and how to apply sick leave benefits.
