If an employee is unable to work due to having or being exposed to COVID-19, they may be eligible for payments from SDI (State Disability Insurance). SDI provides short-term benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages due to a non-work-related illness, injury, or pregnancy.
If an employee is unable to work because they are caring for a family member who has been diagnosed to or has been exposed to COVID-19 they may be eligible for State of CA Paid Family leave (PFL).
Employees should visit: https://www.edd.ca.gov/about_edd/coronavirus-2019.htm for more information and/or to submit a claim.
Please note that Executive Management, Mid-Managers and employees in certain bargaining groups (SRPA, SRFA, SRPMM, SRFCOA) do not contribute to SDI/PFL through their employment with the City. However, they may be eligible due to previous or outside employment.
