New mandatory sick time law for all Massachusetts employers effective July 1, 2015.
With the passage of Ballot Question 4 during last November’s election, beginning on July 1, 2015, any person or business in Massachusetts that pays wages for services is required to provide sick time to their employees. Under the provisions of the new law, Mass. Gen. L. c. 149 §148C, all employees must receive one hour of earned sick time for every 30 hours worked. Employees will be entitled to earn and use a maximum of 40 hours per calendar year. Employees are not entitled to use sick time until 90 days after their date of hire.
