Paid Sick Leave: Solving a Health Issue or Another Burden on


Employers?

A number of states and cities across the country have recently passed bills that require employers to
provide paid sick days, sparking fierce debate among employers, advocates and legislators, which has
prompted some to overturn these laws.
New York joins San Francisco; Portland, Oregon; Washington, D.C.; and Seattle as the latest
municipality to approve such a measure. Under New York's law, which was passed in May, businesses with
20 or more employees will have to provide five paid sick days starting in April 2014, while businesses with
15 or more workers will have until October 2015 to comply. California, Connecticut, New Jersey and
Washington have all passed paid family-leave laws.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about one-third of all workers do not have access to
paid sick days.
Supporters say mandatory paid sick leave is public health issues that will help prevent the spread of
disease by allowing workers who are ill or have a sick child to stay home without fear of losing a day's wages
or a job. Others see it as a matter of work-life balance that will enable workers to care for family members.
But some employers argue that these laws raise their costs, which could prevent them from hiring new
workers or even trigger layoffs.

"This effort to increase labor costs given the current employment situation seems be counter to the
best interests of people who are currently unemployed," says Steve Wojcik, vice president of public policy for
the National Business Group on Health, an advocacy group of large employers. "And if you are employed,
raising labor costs means employers are likely to hire fewer people."
