The City of Oakland is taking measures to slow the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community. This is an important reminder to all Oakland employers and employees of Oakland businesses about Oakland’s Sick Leave Law and guidance from the State of California regarding paid leave and unemployment eligibility.

Oakland recently updated its Paid Sick Leave law to protect workers from COVID-19. Employers should read the new guidelines and post the regulations in a public place.
