Massachusetts Voters Approve New Sick Leave Law: What It Means To Your Business

Massachusetts employers would be well advised to update their written policies, employee handbooks and internal record keeping procedures to prepare for a new law that provides one of the most generous sick leave mandates in the country.

On November 4, 2014, Massachusetts voters approved by a wide margin the new law, known as "Question 4: The Massachusetts Paid Sick Days Initiative," which is effective July 1, 2015. The law applies to all private Massachusetts employers and certain governmental employers, although only employers with more than 10 employees are required to provide paid sick leave. Note, for purposes of the 10 employee cut off, full time, part time and temporary employees are counted.

If you own a business in Massachusetts, PLDO partner and business attorney Bill Miller provides the details of the new law in his advisory, Massachusetts Voters Approve New Sick Leave Law. To contact Attorney Miller for further information about this law or other business matters, email him at [email protected] or call 866-353-3310.
