Paid sick leave pilot program. Establishes a pilot program under which employers with 50 or fewer employees may volunteer to participate. Participating employers agree to provide to full-time employees paid sick days, to be accrued at a rate of no less than one hour for every 50 hours worked. An employee would be entitled to use accrued sick days beginning after the ninetieth calendar day of employment. Participating employers would provide paid sick days, upon the request of the employee, for diagnosis, care, or treatment of health conditions of the employee or the employee's family member. No more than 5,000 employers may participate in the program. Participating employers are eligible for a refundable income tax credit for 30 percent of the costs of hours of paid sick leave provided, over 80 hours in a taxable year, and subject to a limit of $100 per employee. The total annual amount of tax credits is capped at $12.5 million. Read the Bill »
