While certain shelter-in-place restrictions have been lifted under Stage 2 of Governor Newsom’s statewide reopening plan, individual counties may have kept more restrictive orders in place. Employers and employees should review both state and local guidance when determining if employees are eligible for emergency paid sick leave solely because they are subject to an isolation order. Importantly, even in counties who are safely reopening under Stage 2, employees at businesses that are allowed to reopen may still be eligible for emergency paid sick leave for other reasons (for instance, they have been advised by a health care provider to quarantine). Additionally, even if an employee returns to work, they remain eligible for FFCRA benefits until December 31, 2020 if they subsequently qualify for any of the reasons specified in the Act.
