ACCE Webmaster on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at 1:24:00 am
<p>Last month House Democrats&#0160;reintroduced <em>The Healthy Families Act</em> (<em>H.R. 2460) - </em>legislation that would require employers with more than 15 employees to provide paid sick leave to their staff. The provisions in this legislation are similar in nature to the prior federal versions.&#0160; If passed, this legislation would allow employees to earn one hour of leave for every 30 hours worked - up to a maximum of 56 hours (7 days) in one year. </p><p>Some major issues for employers with this legislation include&#0160;administrative burdens related to accrual caluclation and record keeping, overlap with existing leave policies, and verification.</p><p>The <a href="http://www.cose.org/en/Advocacy/Issues/Paid%20Sick%20Leave.aspx">Council of Smaller Enterprises</a>(COSE) - part of the Greater Cleveland Partnership - has compiled information on this pending bill.&#0160; Click <a href="http://www.cose.org/en/Advocacy/Issues/Paid%20Sick%20Leave.aspx">HERE</a>.</p>
