At this point, California has a statewide Paid Sick Leave Law and so do three cities: San Francisco, Oakland, and Emeryville. There are additional local ordinances that apply only to hotel workers, like Long Beach’s Measure N and Los Angeles’s Citywide Hotel Worker Minimum Wage Ordinance. But the state law and the municipal laws in SF, Oakland, and Emeryville apply to employees generally.
How do those laws compare? The answer’s complicated. But our own Tyreen Torner has created this handy chart comparing the laws on more than 20 different criteria. This is the same Tyreen Torner who drafted a summary of San Francisco’s various employment requirements. The comparison chart is a useful tool for anyone trying to comply with the competing requirements of these various jurisdictions. And it’s yours absolutely free!
