This year, California will become one of only a few states to require employers to provide paid sick time to employees.

The newly mandated The Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014, which will come into effect on July 1, 2015, requires a minimum of hours be provided to employees for the care of themselves or family members during illness. In a special 4 part series, we will break down this unprecedented act and explain how it applies to you as an employee and how it will affect employers.

Not only have employees benefited from the newly increase in the state’s minimum wage (read our article on California’s increase in minimum wage here), employees can now also count on at least THREE (3) paid sick days per year. The benefits to employees are substantial as employees are allowed to take 3 paid sick days per year to attend to their own health or their family members. While employers will reap benefits in the form of increased employee productivity and morale.

Tune to our next article explaining this noteworthy new law and how it affects employees and employers in 2015.
