Paid Sick Leave

Federal law does not require employers to provide any paid sick leave to employees. However, in recent years, a growing number of states have passed paid sick leave laws. These laws require private employers to provide employees with at least a few paid sick days each year. Rules regarding covered employers, eligible employees, and leave accrual vary by state. To date, the following states have paid sick leave laws: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington. A growing number of city and local governments have passed similar laws, including Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York City.
