EMPLOYERS ARE PROHIBITED FROM DISCRIMINATING OR RETALIATING AGAINST EMPLOYEES FOR USING ACCRUED SICK DAYS

retaliation for paid sick leave

The passage of the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Family Act prohibits discrimination or retaliation against employees for using accrued sick days or for filing a complaint regarding any sick day policy violation.

Under the new Labor Code section 248.5, the Labor Commissioner may award reinstatement, back pay, and even payment of sick days unlawfully withheld, plus the payment of an additional sum in the form of an administrative penalty to an employee whose rights were violated.

If the employer fails to promptly comply, the Labor Commissioner may take action to ensure compliance, including filing a civil action. In such cases, the violating employer may be sanctioned to pay to the State of California up to $50 for each day a violation occurs.
