Workplace Word® - Just Like the Flu, Paid Sick Leave Laws Don’t Seem to Want to Go Away
May 01, 2017
by Erin Denniston Leach
The momentum on paid sick leave laws has not slowed down and states, counties and cities across the United States – and even the federal government – are continuing to propose and implement mandatory paid sick leave laws. So far approximately 40 states, cities and counties have implemented mandatory paid sick leave laws. These states include Arizona, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Oregon, Vermont and Washington, as well as Washington D.C. For those employers with employees in California, eight different cities in the state also currently have their own paid sick leave laws that in some instances provide even more protection than that provided by state law. In addition, many states, including Maryland, Michigan, Nevada and New Jersey, are currently considering proposed paid sick leave laws.
