  • sick pay and holiday pay in California

    I work for a company that does not provide sick pay and holiday pay for their hourly employees. Is this legal? Eventhough the company is closed for those holidays.

    With one exception, there is no legal requirement that employers offer paid time off, including holiday and sick pay.

    The one exception applies to Exempt Salaried employees only and has less to do with the giving of paid time off but rather the restrictions under federal regulation (29 CFR 541.602) against the docking of the salary except under certain narrowly defined exceptions. Employers never are required to make an employee Exempt, but if the employer chooses to do so, then the employer is required to follow the related rules.

    Hourly employees have no such protections under federal or state law.

      If you work in the City of San Francisco, your employer must provide sick leave.

          Your original question was about hourly employees. You are fishing for what? Answers for a school project?

              Then start with 29 CFR and educate yourself on Federal laws. You can also visit www.dol.gov.
