    ________________________________

    On Friday, March 19, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill (SB) 95, which creates uniform, statewide policy to ensure employees have access to COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave through September 30, 2021. You may recall that the federal stimulus bill enacted in December 2020 did not provide an extension of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), thus Emergency Paid Sick Leave and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act expired December 31, 2020. Absent federal or state law requiring local educational agencies (LEAs) to provide FFCRA leave, many have relied on local ordinances or accrued leave, unpaid leave, and other statutory leave entitlements to manage employee absences for COVID-19-related reasons.

    SB 95 reinstates COVID-19 leave as a provision of state law and expands it to all public and private entities, including LEAs. SB 95 is retroactive to sick leave taken beginning January 1, 2021, and employers with 25 or fewer workers are exempt from this leave provision.

    SB 114 reinstates COVID-19 leave as a provision of state law and expands it to all public and private entities, including LEAs. SB 114 is retroactive to sick leave taken beginning January 1, 2022, and employers with 25 or fewer workers are exempt from this leave provision.

    Click here to view detailed information on this leave policy from the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR). It is an overview of COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave that became effective 2/19/22 and is retroactive back to January 1, 2022 if you were absent due to COVID-19 under one of the applicable reasons. This leave is in effect until it expires September 30, 2022.

    Please contact HR if you have any questions.

    In addition to the sick leave provided by the DIR, Hamilton Unified School District will be doing the following:

    HUSD will: Continue to honor up to 30 days paid sick leave for COVID Positive or COVID quarantine when required by local county Health Departments due to work related exposure for the 2021-2022 school year.

    This information was presented via email, printed PowerPoint and verbally from Dr. Powell during the all staff Professional Development Day on August 6, 2021.
