REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The state with the largest Filipino population is about to implement the largest paid sick leave program in the country.

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill today that will require employers to give one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours of work, starting in July of 2015.

It’s the largest paid sick leave program in the country and will affect approximately 6.5 million workers who cannot take time off when they are sick or to care for a sick family member, under the current law.

California is the second state, after Connecticut, to mandate paid sick leave.
