Vendor Sick Leave Rate Increase

SB616 – Vendor Sick Leave Rate Increase

This entitles employees who work on or after January 1, 2024, to accrue 40 hours or 5 days of sick leave or paid time off by the 200th calendar day of employment, each calendar year or 12-month period. Effective January 1, 2024, vendor’s may apply for a rate increase in order to comply with the new sick leave mandate.
