Paid Sick Time

Healthy Families Act

The Healthy Families Act (S. 497 / H.R. 932) has been reintroduced in the House and Senate. The bill would guarantee workers the right to earn up to 7 paid sick days a year to address their own health needs or to care for a sick family member. Click here to read more about this act.

Kin Care Laws

Among private sector workers who do have access to paid sick time, only 30% can use that time to care for a sick child. Nine states and the District of Columbia have passed legislation to address this problem, allowing workers who have paid sick time to use that time to care for a sick family member.
