Michigan Lawmakers Adopt Paid Sick Leave Initiative

Michigan lawmakers yesterday adopted the paid sick leave initiative that otherwise would have been presented to voters in November. The GOP-controlled Senate and House adopted the initiative  by wide margins.  One report indicated that the paid sick leave law would be effective in March 2019. The ballot initiative which the legislature adopted is here.

Michigan is the eleventh state to require employers to allow employees to accrue paid sick time. For a list of the other ten, see here.
