States are free to draft sick pay laws that uniquely and diversely affect employers. Current sick pay laws may have common characteristics, but varied application. To date, there are six States and twenty municipalities with sick pay laws. In addition, the President signed Executive Order 13706, which requires entities contracting with the Federal government to provide employees with up to seven days of paid sick leave annually. The result is a hodgepodge of regulation that creates burdensome administration and increased expense for employers.
