San Diego Issues Required Postings, Acknowledgement Form under Earned Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinance

  • September 13, 2016

The City of San Diego’s Earned Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinance went into effect on July 11, 2016. Beginning October 1, 2016, employers must post two new notices in the workplace and give employees and new hires a notice containing certain employer information. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in significant civil penalties.

(For details of the Ordinance, see our article, San Diego Earned Sick Leave and Minimum Wage Ordinance Approved by Popular Vote.)

Employers must post the following notices in a location in the workplace where all employees can easily read them: (1) earned sick leave and (2) minimum wage.

In addition, all employees (both exempt and nonexempt) who work in the City of San Diego must receive an individual employee notice. New employees hired to work in the City also must receive an individual notice as part of their new hire paperwork.

The City provides the notices in English and other languages.

Employers with operations in San Diego should seek legal guidance to ensure compliance with the new requirements. Please contact Jackson Lewis if you have any questions.
