At a special meeting this evening at 7pm, the Town Council will consider adoption of a proposed Urgency Ordinance to establish COVID-19-related paid sick leave requirements for San Anselmo businesses with 25 or fewer employees through September 30, 2021.
Under the proposed ordinance, paid sick leave is available for any of the following reasons:
1. The Employee has been advised by a health care provider to isolate or self-quarantine to prevent the spread of COVID-19;
2. The Employee is subject to a federal, state, or local quarantine or isolation order due to COVID19;
3. The Employee is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and is seeking a medical diagnosis;
4. The Employee needs to care for an Individual who is subject to a federal, state, or local quarantine or isolation order related to COVID-19, or has been advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine related to COVID-19, or is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and is seeking a medical diagnosis;
5. The Employee needs to provide care for an Individual whose senior care provider or whose school or childcare provider is closed or unavailable in response to a public health or other public official’s recommendation;
6. The Employee is attending an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine; or
7. The Employee is experiencing symptoms related to a COVID-19 vaccine that prevent the Employee from being able to work or telework. (Ord. §5-1(d)).
The proposed ordinance is substantively identical to a Marin County ordinance and is applicable to businesses with 25 or fewer employees within San Anselmo. The ordinance requires these businesses to provide paid sick leave at a maximum rate of $511/day or $5110 in aggregate for employees who cannot telework. (Ord. §5- 1(e)). These rates are consistent with the tax credits available to employers under the American Rescue Plan.
