2021 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave goes into Effect March 29, 2021

Covered Employees in the public or private sectors who work for employers with more than 25 employees are entitled to up to 80 hours of COVID-19 related sick leave from January 1, 2021 to September 30, 2021, immediately upon an oral or written request to their employer.
Additionally, the employee's paystub must separately reflect the amount of COVID-19 supplemental leave available, the rate of pay, and any corresponding wages.  Importantly, this means COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave must be set forth as an entirely separate line item from regular paid sick leave.  The Labor Commissioner is required to provide a model notice template wage statement by April 5, 2021.  The wage statement requirement will not be enforceable against an employer until the next full pay period following March 29, 2021.  Therefore, employers must quickly implement the new COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave requirements and update their wage statements as well.
