  • Voters in Massachusetts approved the Earned Sick Time Law (the “Law”) in November 2014. Among other provisions, the Law entitles employees to accrue and use up to 40 hours of earned sick time each calendar year. The Law is scheduled to go into effect July 1, 2015. Following the issuance of proposed regulations on April 24, 2015, and an extensive comment period, the Massachusetts Attorney General released Final Regulations on June 19, 2015, further clarifying many aspects of the Law and making changes to the proposed regulations.
