San Jose Publishes FAQs on New COVID-19 Leave Ordinance

Last week, the city of San Jose, CA, adopted an emergency ordinance requiring large employers and others not covered by the paid leave provisions included in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to provide paid leave for covered COVID-19 related purposes.

This week, the city's Office of Equality Assurance published guidance in the form of Frequently Asked Questions that further explain the paid leave and recordkeeping requirements. The city has also published a one-page summary of the law's requirements.
