Bill Requiring Paid Sick Days For Employees Takes One Step Closer To Becoming Law

The Assembly Labor and Employment Committee passed the Healthy Families, Healthy Workplaces Act today by a vote of 6-2.

The bill, introduced by Assemblywoman Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco) in February, AB 2716, would allow workers to earn paid sick days that can be used to recover from illness, care for a sick family member, or recover from domestic violence or sexual assault.

The next step for the bill is the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, April 15.  If passed by the legislature and signed into law, California would be the first state in the nation to require employers to provide paid sick days.  Click here for a prior post discussing the implications of AB 2716 on California employers
