Did you know that numerous states and cities have passed laws granting leave for workers to address certain health and family-related issues? And that many local governments mandate paid time off for being sick? Requiring employers to provide time off for employees is a growing trend, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
Mainly due to inaction at the federal level, many states and local governments have stepped up to grant employees time off in specific circumstances. These laws vary greatly from how much leave is allowed, how the time off is accrued, when employees can begin to use leave, and if the time can be carried over from year to year.
