The State of Connecticut has passed a bill requiring employers with 50 or more workers to provide sick leave for employees.
This bill requires most employers that employ 50 or more people in the state to provide certain employees with paid sick leave accruing at a rate of one hour per 40 hours worked. The bill provides paid sick leave to service workers who work in an occupation with one of 68 federal Standard Occupational Classification System titles named in the bill and are paid by the hour.
The earliest service workers can begin accruing sick leave is January 1, 2012…
Certain employers, such as manufacturers and tax-exempt organizations, are excluded from the requirements of the bill. More details here.
