California has revised a labor code to give employees the right to designate sick leave for:
- Kin care, or care of a family member;
- The employee’s own health condition; or
- Obtaining relief if the employee is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.
Kin care includes a child, parent, guardian, spouse, domestic partner, grandchild, grandparent and sibling.
Employers should revise their policies.
