New Legislation for Paid Sick Days

Can my employer deny me paid sick time?

Not any more, if your employer has more than 50 employees.  The Connecticut legislature just passed a law requiring these employers to give their employees 5 paid sick days off per year.  Check out Attorney Dan Schwartz’s blog for a full explanation of the bill.

The law does have some exceptions: manufacturers are not required to comply with this law, and temporary employees are not entitled to the paid sick leave.

Overall, this is a great bill!

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber, McKenna & Dinsmore did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
