(a) The Board of Supervisors may amend this Chapter with respect to matters relating to its implementation and enforcement (including but not limited to those matters addressed in Section 12W.8) and matters relating to employer requirements for verification or documentation of an employee’s use of sick leave, but not with respect to this Chapter’s substantive requirements or scope of coverage, except as stated in subsections (b) and (c); provided, however, that, in the event any provision in this Chapter is held legally invalid, the Board retains the power to adopt legislation concerning the subject matter that was covered in the invalid provision.
(b) The Board of Supervisors may amend this Chapter’s substantive requirements or scope of coverage for the purpose of adopting provisions parallel to state or federal law, if and to the extent state or federal law provides greater or additional substantive requirements, or broader coverage, than this Chapter.
(c) Notwithstanding subsection (b), the Board of Supervisors may amend this Chapter’s substantive requirements or scope of coverage as to the amendments adopted by the voters at the June 7, 2016 election, for the purpose of adopting provisions that parallel any changes in State law regarding those provisions of State law on which those amendments are based. This subsection (c) shall not be construed to authorize any other amendment of this Chapter or to reduce the substantive requirements or scope of coverage of this Chapter below that which existed before the amendments adopted at the June 7, 2016 election.
