Sick Leave for Substitutes

The Healthy Families Act of 2014, Assembly Bill 1522, provides paid sick leave to non-bargaining unit employees of the district. An employee who, on or after July 1, 2015 works in California for thirty or more days within a year from the beginning of employment is entitled to paid sick leave.


Any temporary or substitute employee who works for thirty or more days within a year of employment shall be credited with 24 hours of paid sick leave for that year.  Unused sick leave shall not carry over to the following year of employment. (Labor Code 246)


An employee may use accrued paid sick days beginning on the 90th day of employment. 


A temporary or substitute employee may use accrued sick leave for absences due for: (Labor Code 246.5)

Own need or the need of a family member, as defined in Labor Code 245.5, for the diagnosis, care, or treatment of an existing health condition or for preventive care

Need of the employee to obtain or seek any relief or medical attention specified in Labor Code 230(c) and 230.1(a) for the health, safety, or welfare of the employee, or his/her child, when the employee has been a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.


How to Use AB 1522 Sick Leave:

Most employees will request use of their sick leave entitlement by declining a job/assignment in Frontline due to one of the qualifying reasons listed above.  After doing this the employee will need to complete a timesheet for that date at the school site they declined the position for. 


If a temporary or substitute employee is in a long term assignment and needs to request to use their sick leave, they must contact Reena Korah in advance and she will assist with entering the sick leave in Frontline.
