State passes Covid paid Leave

The California Legislature has approved a bill requiring workers receive up to two weeks of paid time off if they get sick from the coronavirus. Lawmakers approved the bill Monday. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is expected to sign it into law. The bill applies to companies with 26 employees or more. California had a similar law last year, but it expired in September. The new bill would be retroactive to Jan. 1 of this year. Lawmakers also approved big tax cuts for businesses that would save them about $5.5 billion. Those cuts were supposed to take effect next year, but lawmakers voted to make them this year.
