Employers may allow employees to use accrued, unused paid sick leave prior to the ninetieth calendar day after the commencement of his or her employment.
(3) Beginning on the ninetieth calendar day after the commencement of his or her employment, employers must make accrued paid sick leave available to employees for use in a manner consistent with the employer's established payment interval or leave records management system, not to exceed one month after the date of accrual.
