Working Families


This bill requires each employer to provide earned sick leave to each employee it employs in the State.  The employee accrues one hour of earned sick leave for every 30 hours worked.  The employer is not required to permit the employee to accrue at any one time, or carry forward from one year to the next, more than 40 hours of earned sick leave if the employer has less than 10 employees in the State, or more than 72 hours of earned sick leave if the employer has 10 or more employees.  Unless the employee accrued earned sick leave with the employer before January 1, 2014, the leave accrues beginning on that date or on the 90th day after the employee is hired, unless the employer agrees to an earlier date.

    I own a very small busines which the state enforces how many employees I must hire, as well as how many clients I am allowed in the building. Now they think they have a right to tell me how much sick time I must provide, would they help pay for ? I have always, from the time I opened have given my employees sick days, I as well as a paid vacation. I have been generous which now will be nothing just more goverment enforcement.
