As of May 13th, the Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act (ASSLA) is now the law and employers have six months to come into compliance with its requirements. ASSLA requires employers in the District of Columbia to provide paid leave to employees for physical or mental illness, preventive medical care, family care, and certain absences associated with domestic violence or sexual abuse. The amount of leave that an employer must provide varies depending on the employer's size. ASSLA applies to all employers in the District of Columbia, including non-profit and for-profit entities, with a few exceptions. Employers should examine their current leave policies and collective bargaining agreements and take the necessary steps to bring them into compliance.
Please join Seyfarth Shaw attorneys for a briefing to discuss ASSLA's requirements and strategies for implementing the law in your workplace.
