Mayor Eric Garcetti signed the City of Los Angeles COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Ordinance (the Ordinance) into law on April 7. Originally passed by the Los Angeles City Council on March 27, the new Ordinance applies to employers who have at least 500 employees nationwide (i.e., those businesses that had been excluded from the reach of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act) and requires these employers to provide two weeks of additional paid sick leave to workers who are unable to work because of specified COVID-19-related reasons. The Ordinance is effective April 10, 2020, and will expire Dec. 31, 2020, unless extended before that date. However, the Mayor took further action on the Ordinance.
