In 2015, Los Angeles enacted a new minimum wage ordinance (MWO) and required a posting by July 1, 2016. After L.A. released the required minimum wage notice, the City amended their minimum wage law to include paid sick leave requirements – and a posting requirement for the Paid Sick Leave law.
Initially, the City was unclear whether they would issue a separate Paid Sick Leave notice or whether the current minimum wage poster would be amended. The GovDocs Research Department confirmed with the City that the L.A. Minimum Wage notice would be revised to include the new Paid Sick Leave law.
L.A, now has released a revised Minimum Wage notice that now includes the paid sick leave notice.

Los Angeles Paid Sick Leave Requirements
As of July 1, 2016, employers with 26 or more employees must provide workers with one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked or 48 hours at the beginning of each year of employment.
Workers can begin using accrued time beginning the ninetieth day of employment, with workers able to use up to 48 hours of paid sick leave in one year. However, workers can carry over up to 72 hours of unused accrued time from one year to the next.
Employers with 25 or fewer workers will begin providing sick leave benefits July 1, 2017.
