Download our Paid Sick Leave Laws: California, Oregon, Washington & Federal Legal Guide

California and Oregon already impose strict requirements for mandatory paid sick leave and Washington joins the fray on January 1, 2018. Meanwhile, certain federal contractors must offer paid sick leave to employees performing work on their federal contracts. If your employees work in California, Oregon, or Washington, or if you hold federal contracts, you’ll want to review our legal guide summarizing and comparing these laws.

Why do I need this legal guide?

  • Does our company need to comply with West Coast (CA/OR/WA) and federal paid sick leave laws?

    Each state has its own rules for determining what employers are covered and which employees are eligible for paid sick leave. In addition, the federal government has separate requirements for certain federal contractors to provide paid sick leave.

  • Understand what types of absences are protected.

    These laws grant employees protected time off for many reasons, not just employee illness.

  • Evaluate whether your existing paid leave policy complies with relevant ordinances.

    Each law contains specific requirements that establish how quickly new hires and existing employees can earn and use paid sick leave, and whether they can carry unused leave over to the next year.
