Background and Details of the Change:
A growing number of cities and counties are requiring employers to offer sick pay to eligible employees. We anticipate this trend will continue and expect to see additional local jurisdictions enact sick pay laws in the near future.
Some of the local jurisdictions requiring sick pay include:
- Berkeley, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Santa Monica, California
- Chicago and Cook County, Illinois
- Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota
- Morristown, New Jersey
- Seattle and Spokane, Washington
