Missed work due to COVID?
You might be eligible for COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave under AB 1867!On September 9, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1867, which requires some private employers to provide employees with paid sick time for certain COVID-19-related absences. AB 1687 closes the gaps left open by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) by expanding coverage to healthcare providers or emergency responders.

AB 1867 provides leave to employees who are unable to work because they are:

  • subject to a federal, state, or local quarantine or isolation order; or
  • advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine or self-isolate due to COVID-19; or
  • prohibited from working by their employer due to health concerns related to the potential transmission of COVID-19

If you were unable to work for any of these reasons, you may be entitled to two weeks of paid sick leave at, your regular rate of pay (up to a cap of $511/day). Full time, Part time and Per-Diem employees. If you believe you were eligible to receive supplemental paid sick leave per AB 1867, but you were not paid, contact your Union Rep/Organizer.
