Starting on July 1, 2015 employees in Massachusetts will be able to earn and use sick time if they meet certain conditions.
Individuals who work for a company with eleven or more employees could earn up to 40 hours of paid sick time per calendar year. While those working for smaller companies could earn and use up to 40 hours of unpaid sick time per calendar year.
The Attorney General will enforce the new law, using the same enforcement procedures applicable to other state wage laws, and employees could file suits in court to enforce their earned sick time rights. This is some scary stuff considering how fast the deadline is approaching. We encourage to ensure your current construction accounting software is able to keep track of earned sick time. If it does not, then we have some good news for you!
