Back to School: Working Parents, Know Your Rights When Your Child Is Sick

Currently, a total of 10 states guarantee working parents the right to use earned sick time to care for their children when they are sick or in need of preventive care such as a yearly doctor’s checkup. Those states are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

New Rights for NYC Working Families
