Revised on June 23, 2015 to incorporate final regulations issued by Massachusetts on June 22, 2015.
On November 4, 2014, Massachusetts' voters approved a ballot question that requires all private sector employers to provide employees with up to 40 hours of sick time per calendar year. Beginning July 1, 2015 employers with 11 or more employees must provide PAID sick time for all employees (full time, part time, seasonal, temporary and interns). Employers with less than 11 employees must provide unpaid sick leave.
An employer must provide earned paid sick time to all eligible employees if the employer maintained an average of 11 or more employees on the payroll during the preceding benefit year. Employers shall determine the average number of employees by counting the number of employees, including full time, part-time, seasonal, and temporary employees, on the payroll during each pay period and dividing by the number of pay periods.
