CA governor just recently signed SB 114 which takes effect immediately. It requires employers to provide COVID supplemental sick pay in addition to regular sick pay and is retroactive to January 1st.
Like it did in 2021, California requires information concerning CPSL to be available on paystubs or other written notices employees receive on payday. However, unlike the 2021 law where employers only had to display CPSL "available," employers only must report 2022 CPSL hours an employee "used" (reporting "zero hours" until an employee uses CPSL).
So far, there is no way in Quickbooks for this to be shown. When will Quickbooks be updating it so that it will show on wage statements? It's ridiculous that it hasn't been updated already. For the amount that we pay to have payroll through them, I would expect to not have to send out something separately that should already be on a paystub.
Hello there, mcclapper.
For now, having the option to show the available balances for COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave on pay stubs is unavailable in QuickBooks Desktop.
You'll need to set up a CA Covid addition pay item to ensure you're paying your employees correctly according to the CA COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave.

This is not for the FFCRA, this is for the 2022 CA SPSL which is something different and specific to California from 1/1/2022-9/30/2022. The link you showed me for FFCRA also states to not use it for payroll anymore as it's been expired.
Welcome back, mcclapper.
I'll share additional information in handling the newly implemented CA COVID Supplemental Sick Pay for employees affected by COVID 19.
Under the bill signed by CA Governor, employers with more than 25 employees are required to provide up to 80 hours of COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave to their employees. The employees are eligible if they're unable to work or telework due to any of the following reasons:
Currently, the program won't track or stop at the allowed 80 hours limit. Instead, you'll have to manually track and provide information to your employees about their available and used hours. You can set up an additional pay item to guarantee that you're paying your employees correctly following the CA COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave.
