California Paid Sick Leave Law and Cell Phone Reimbursement Plans

Breakfast Briefing
Date and Time

Join us every first Thursday of the month for breakfast and a discussion on hot HR topics. This complimentary event is a great opportunity to network and talk with other HR professionals and our expert lawyers in an informal and collaborative setting to get the information you need to stay in the know.

Recently, Governor Brown signed into law the “Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014.” Starting soon, employers will be required to provide a minimum of 3 paid sick leave days per year. This new requirement affects businesses large and small. Is your business prepared for the numerous implications of mandatory paid sick leave? In another recent development, a California court interpreted Labor Code language to require employers to reimburse employees for expenses pertaining to their work-related use of personal cell phones. The holding may implicate a number of other important wage-and-hour laws. Has your business considered a cell phone reimbursement policy? Businesses should prepare for these new developments with policies designed to address the new requirements. Come learn how.
