More and more cities and states, recognizing that paid sick time is an important tool to reduce the spread of infectious disease, are moving to require employers to provide paid sick days, and ABB is helping at every stage of the process.
The Austin City Council voted 9-2 to pass a paid sick time ordinance, making Austin the first city in Texas, and the first jurisdiction in the South, to guarantee workers the right to earn paid sick time to use when they or a family member, including a chosen family member are ill or in need of care.
The law will allow workers who work for employers with at least 15 employees to earn up to 40 hours of paid sick time per year. The HWFA also allows workers to earn “safe time”—time off to address situations related to domestic violence.
A Better Balance was proud to be on hand at City Hall yesterday as Mayor de Blasio signed into law an expansion of New York City’s paid sick time law to cover domestic violence purposes and to expand the definition of family members for whom New York workers can take sick leave.

The New York City Council passed a landmark piece of legislation that will provide powerful new rights to 3.4 million workers by expanding the city’s sick time law. This marks not only an important step forward for New York City, but also an important victory for our national movement for inclusive workplace leave laws.
This report calls attention to some of the most pressing problems facing workers across the city today, with particular focus on issues affecting more vulnerable workers, including immigrant workers, undocumented workers, home care workers, and domestic workers.
If successful, Austin would join a nationwide momentum of cities and states passing paid sick time laws to protect workers, while becoming the first jurisdiction in the region to do so.
We must continue to advocate for inclusive workplace leave policies that address the unique health needs of stigmatized and disadvantaged communities including TGNC communities, so that everyone is able to care for themselves and their loved ones.
