JANUARY 12, 2016
The Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014 was passed to allow most types of employees in California to be eligible for paid sick leave.

Unlike a similar law in Connecticut, which requires only companies of more than 50 employees to offer paid sick leave, this law affects even the smallest of startups.
