Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. My company offers one hour of sick time for every 30 hours that I work. I have accrued 22 hours of of sick time.
A: No, not unless your employer’s policy provides for a payout. If you leave your job and get rehired by the same employer within 12 months, you can reclaim (restore) what you had accrued in paid sick leave, provided it was not paid out pursuant to a paid time off policy at termination.
Q. Are salesmen always supposed to get Commission
A: In California, all commission agreements are supposed to be in writing so the employee knows how to calculate wages. If you were given a commission agreement, the employer may be liable for breach of contract.
Q. Can I be laid off while on disability?
A: In California, covered employers are required to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to eligible employees for certain family and medical reasons, such as an employee’s serious health condition. However, the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and workers’ compensation laws create additional obligations to “reasonably accommodate” the employee’s disability. Still, the ADA does not require an employer to ignore business realities. An employer is not required to make an accommodation if it would impose an “undue hardship” on the operation of the employer’s business. “Undue hardship” is defined as an action requiring significant difficulty or expense when considering several factors, including the nature and cost of the accommodation in relation to the size, resources, nature, and structure of the employer’s operation. The other aspect of this analysis is COVID. If the employer was laying off all staff and closing, then there would be not job to return to after your disability.
