Paid sick leave continues its spread through a host of cities and local communities across the country, although the rate at which it is being adopted may seem to have slowed somewhat. Duluth, Minnesota became the latest when it adopted paid sick leave mandates on private employers to become effective January 1, 2020. Adopted just over a week ago, the ordinance applies to employers with 5 or more employees nationwide and provides that employees will accrue one hour of paid sick leave for every 50 hours worked. Employees can earn up to 64 hours paid leave per year, but use of the time may be capped at 40 hours per year, with the employee allowed to carry over unused time to the next year. The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul had adopted their own paid sick leave law last year.
