HOW DO EMPLOYEES ACCRUE PAID SICK LEAVE IN CALIFORNIA?
Accrual of paid sick leave is based on the number of hours an employee works
An employee accrues paid sick leave over time, with the accrued time carrying over in each year of employment terms.
Generally, employees under an accrual plan must earn at least one hour of paid sick leave for each 30 hours of work. Further, the schedule must result in an employee having at least 24 hours of accrued sick leave or paid time off by the 120th calendar day of employment.
Although employees may accrue more than three days of paid sick leave under the one hour for every 30 hours worked under an accrual method, the law allows employers to limit an employee’s use of paid sick leave to 24 hours or three days during a year. The law also allows an employer to limit an employee’s total accrued paid sick leave to no more than 48 hours or six days.
