Workplace Word® - Paid Sick Leave – It’s an Epidemic
October 12, 2015
by Tiffanny Brosnan
From California to Connecticut, and places in between, the reach of paid sick leave laws is spreading rapidly. Currently, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Oregon and Washington D.C. have state- (or district-) wide laws requiring employers to provide paid sick time for their employees. President Obama recently signed an executive order requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to provide paid sick leave on a national level. Counties and cities are also taking the movement down to a more local level. San Francisco, Oakland and Emeryville, California have their own paid sick leave laws, as well as Seattle, Washington; New York City, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and nine cities in New Jersey.
