Milwaukee Voters Approve Paid Sick Leave Ordinance

On November 4, 2008, voters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, approved a referendum that requires private employers to provide paid sick leave to employees who work in the city. Employers must provide a minimum of one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked by an employee, up to 72 hours a year.

Employees of small businesses (fewer than 10 employees) may accrue up to 40 hours a year. Employees do not begin to accrue paid sick leave until February 10, 2009. The District of Columbia and San Francisco also mandate paid sick leave [City of Milwaukee, Ordinance File No. 080420].
This important update is an excerpt from the article, “Milwaukee Voters Approve Paid Sick Leave Ordinance” from the December 12 issue of PayState Update (Issue No. 25, Vol. 10).
