The End of COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave in Sight

Topics: COVID-19, Employee Leave

In October, Governor Newsom announced that California’s COVID-19 State of Emergency will end on February 28, 2023. Likewise, 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave is currently scheduled to sunset on December 31, 2022 under the terms of that statute. As of this writing, there is no known pending legislation that would require paid COVID-19 leave for 2023.

Further, many local governments’ States of Emergency have ended or are coming to an end. For example, most recently, the City Council of Los Angeles voted to end L.A.’s state of emergency on February 1, 2023. Significantly, and assuming it comes to fruition, L.A.’s COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave ordinance will end on February 15, 2023, two weeks after the expiration of the emergency period.

As some local governments may continue to have emergency orders or ordinances requiring the equivalent of COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave, California employers with leave questions or concerns related to employees who test positive or claim to have COVID 19 symptoms should contact the author or their favorite CDF attorney.
