Tools and Resources for Paid Sick Time Campaigns

Model Laws

This model legislation would establish a general right to paid sick time, including additional leave for a public health emergency. Inclusion of public health emergency leave is especially necessary given the current pandemic. This legislation was adapted from model paid sick and safe time legislation developed by A Better Balance and the National Partnership for Women & Families.

Please note that drafting a paid sick time policy requires state-specific research, analysis of underlying state and/or local law and consideration of complex policy issues. Please contact us at or regarding more information on how to adapt or customize this model.
