20. How much Emergency Paid Sick Leave are Temp/Seasonal employees eligible to request?

Most work for Temp/Seasonal employees has been suspended as of March 17.  Employees are eligible to use their earned sick leave accruals up to the maximum of 24 hours over a 12-month period per the City’s Paid Sick Time Policy for Temporary Employees. Employees may also apply for Unemployment online through EDD.  A reduction in hours is not a qualifying reason under the Emergency Paid Sick leave provision of the FFCRA. 

If a temp/seasonal employee has been working since April 1 and is no longer able to work due to a qualifying reason per the Emergency Paid Sick Leave provision of FFCRAthe number of hours they would be eligible to request each day is equal to the average number of hours each day that he or she was scheduled to work over the period of employment, up to the last six months.  They would also be eligible to use up to 24 hours of their accrued sick leave per the City’s Paid Sick Time Policy as stated above.
