OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill alters the method certain employers use to determine if they must provide paid sick leave, changes the timeframe for accruing paid sick leave, extends the right to paid sick leave to radiologic technologists, and prohibits businesses from taking certain actions to avoid having to provide paid sick leave. This does not result in any fiscal impact to the state or municipalities.

House “A” makes definitional changes to the paid sick leave statutes and prohibits employers from reducing employees in order to avoid having to provide paid sick leave.
