S.F. Paid Sick Leave Policy Works Well, Report Finds
San Francisco's paid sick leave policy -- the first in the nation when it was enacted in 2007 -- has not been abused by workers and has support from business, according to an Institute for Women's Policy Research report. Under the law, large businesses must provide up to nine paid sick leave days annually, and small businesses with fewer than 10 employees must offer up to five paid sick days annually.
