Paid Sick Leave Mandated for Many Employers in Philadelphia


The Philadelphia City Council has passed a new ordinance, effective July 1, 2012, that will require certain employers in the City of Philadelphia to provide their employees with paid sick leave. The ordinance, which will become law without Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter's signature, was approved by the council in a 15-2 vote. Mayor Nutter had previously vetoed a similar bill that would have required all businesses in the City of Philadelphia with more than five employees to provide a minimum number of paid sick days. In essence, the new ordinance applies the provisions of the vetoed sick leave bill to a much smaller group of employers.
