These are some of the findings from an online survey of 1,316 teens conducted by the Pew Research Center from April 14 to May 4, 2022. More details about the findings on adoption and use of digital technologies by teens are covered below.

The 2022 Civic pairs an inviting interior with spirited handling and excellent fuel-economy ratings,* delivering an overall value that helped it to be named the 2022 Best Compact Car for the Money by U.S. News & World Report.

Notes: Case data reported since January 1, 2022 are provided for situational awareness and subject to change. Confirmed cases include those laboratory-confirmed as mpox virus and may include cases only confirmed as orthopoxvirus. Among locations (including countries, territories, and areas) that have not historically reported mpox, several have reported sporadic cases linked to travel or imported animals prior to 2022. Additionally, Ghana has not historically reported mpox cases, however, the country was identified as the source of a shipment of wild mammals that subsequently led to the 2003 outbreak in the U.S.

It is important to note that workers taking 2022 SPSL as of December 31, 2022 could have continued to take the leave they were on even if the entitlement extended past December 31, 2022. For example, an employee who exhibited symptoms and was recommended to isolate on December 28, 2021 could have continued to utilize the 2022 SPSL they would be entitled to even if that isolation was required to extend into January 2023, and be paid for the time according to the requirements of the 2022 SPSL law.

After December 31, 2022, workers who were not paid the SPSL they were entitled to when they were unable to work in 2022 due to COVID-19 can still request pay from their employer or file a claim with the Labor Commissioner.

2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave provides for two separate banks of leave, each of up to 40 hours. The first bank of COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave, up to 40 hours, is available to covered employees unable to work or telework due to any one of the following reasons:

January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. Although the law was signed on February 9, 2022, the requirement for an employer to provide 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave does not start until February 19, 2022. Beginning on February 19, 2022 the requirement to provide 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave is retroactive to January 1, 2022, which means that covered employees who took qualifying leave between January 1, 2022 and February 19, 2022, can request payment for that leave if it was not paid by the employer in the amount that is required under this law.

The requirement to provide 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave will end on December 31, 2022. If the law expires while a covered employee is taking this leave, the employee can finish taking the amount of 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave they are entitled to receive.

Employers have a 10-day grace period after the signing of the law to begin providing 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave. This means that employers are required to provide this leave beginning on February 19, 2022.

For 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave taken by a covered employee on or after February 19, 2022, the employer must provide payment by the payday for the next regular payroll period after the sick leave was taken.

Yes, in several situations. First, the 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law permits the employer to seek documentation before paying an employee if an employee is using the COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave that is only available after a positive test. In such circumstances, the employee must provide the test results upon the reasonable request of the employer. If the employee fails to provide the result of the test, then the employer may deny pay for any leave taken. Second, when an employee uses more than three days or 24 hours for a single vaccine appointment and recovery from any related side effects, an employer may seek medical certification that the employee required more time to recover from those side effects. Medical certification in this context would likely be a note from a health care provider that the employee or family member continued to have vaccine side effects. See FAQ 23 below. Finally, when seeking retroactive pay, please see FAQ 14.

Yes, in certain circumstances. The 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law provides that an employer may require a test after 5 days have passed since the employee tested positive for COVID-19. Also, after the law was amended in September 2022 an employer may require a second test after 24 hours have passed from the first required test. If the employee fails to take such a test required by the employer, the employer may deny pay for any leave taken after the time the employer provides the test. Any test required by the employer must be made available by the employer and at no cost to the employee. Making a test available means ensuring the employee has a rapid test in hand or securing an appointment at a testing facility for the employee. A test has not been made available by the employer if it has not been received by the employee.

Yes, the number of hours of leave corresponding to the amount of the retroactive payment counts toward the total number of hours of 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave that the employer is required to provide to the covered employee (see FAQs 15-18), under the following circumstances:

Yes, as long as the payment meets the requirements in the law. For example, an employer may have already voluntarily provided a covered employee with other COVID-19 related paid sick leave between January 1, 2022, and February 19, 2022. For an employer to receive a credit for those sick leave hours that the employer voluntarily paid, the following must apply:

California law sets minimum requirements for 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave and does not override local requirements for such leave. Thus, if an employer must provide COVID-19-related supplemental paid sick leave pursuant to a local law (and intends for that sick leave to count toward the requirements of California law), the employer must provide leave at a rate of pay that would ensure compliance with both the local law and California law, which would be the higher of the rates required. If an employer is uncertain as to how to calculate pay under a local ordinance, the employer should contact the relevant local jurisdiction for guidance.

2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave for exempt covered employees must be calculated in the same manner as the employer calculates wages for other forms of paid leave time. An employer is not required to pay more than $511 per day and $5,110 in the aggregate to a covered employee for 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave taken by the covered employee, but the covered employee may utilize other paid leave that may be available in order to receive what they would normally earn if the cap is reached.

Yes. The 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law is clear that the obligation to provide COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave is in addition to regular paid sick leave. The itemized wage statement or separate writing requirement ensures covered employees understand how many separate hours they have used for 2022 COVID-specific sick leave. The 2022 SPSL differs from 2021 SPSL in that the paystub must list what has been used instead of what is available to use. If no hours have yet been used then the paystub or other writing issued at the time wages are paid must indicate 0. An employer is not required to have separate entries showing the amount used from each bank.

In addition, Labor Code Section 247.5 requires that records be kept for a three-year period on regular paid sick days and 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick days accrued and used, and that the records be made available to the Labor Commissioner or employee upon request.

Yes. Both the FFCRA emergency paid sick leave and the 2020 California Supplemental Paid Sick Leave laws expired on December 31, 2020. The 2021 California Supplement Paid Sick Leave law expired on September 30, 2021. The new 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave law allows covered employees to take up to 40 hours of COVID-19 related sick leave during the period January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, regardless of whether they took leave under the previous laws. Employees may be able to take up to an additional 40 hours as discussed in FAQ 4.

No. When an employee is excluded by their employer and entitled to exclusion pay (Exclusion Pay FAQ link), an employer may not require the use of 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave before providing exclusion pay. This is a change from the 2021 SPSL law, which did allow an employer to require an employee to exhaust SPSL before providing exclusion pay.

Specific challenges in 2022 also contributed to the global increase in emissions. Of the overall increase of 321 Mt CO2, extreme temperatures contributed 60 Mt from heating and cooling for buildings. The decline in nuclear power generation, due to both maintenance and continued phase-outs, led to another 55 Mt CO2.

Emissions reductions were particularly pronounced in Europe, where they fell by 13.5%, with the strongest year-on-year reductions coming in the last months of the year. European gas prices reached record highs in 2022 following a sharp decline in Russian gas flows. However, a mild start to winter helped reduce household heating demand. In the Asia Pacific, LNG spot prices also spiked, and natural gas emissions declined by 1.8%, the largest year-on-year decline ever seen in the region. By contrast, natural gas demand remained robust in the United States and Canada, where emissions from gas increased by 5.8%. 041b061a72
