Labor Commissioner Publishes Poster Concerning New SPSL

by | Feb 17, 2022 | COVID, DLSE, Employment Law, SPSL

The Labor Commissioner has published a poster relating to the notice requirements of the new COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law.

Employers should make this poster available to employees as soon as possible and post it in a conspicuous place in the workplace for employees to review.

The bill advises that if covered employees do not frequent a workplace, the employer may satisfy the notice requirement by disseminating notice through electronic means, such as by electronic mail.  Even without this situation, employers should consider sending electronic copies to employees via email per S.B. 657.  However, S.B. 657 does not change the requirement to physically post the information.

The poster is available at the following link:

There is also a Spanish copy available here:
