Paid Sick Days Toolkit
CLASP has developed materials to help state and local advocacy groups engage businesses around paid sick days. These materials reflect our experiences in targeted states and the insights of advocates who have partnered with businesses. These tools are designed to "move the needle" in other locations.
CLASP's Paid Sick Days Toolkit Includes:
City of Philadelphia Guidelines Clarify Paid Sick Leave Ordinance is a guide on the mandated leave benefits in Philadelphia.
Sample Employee Leave and Time Off Policy contains sample policies that you can quickly customize to create your own personal leave policy.
Paid Sick Days: Reaching Out to Businesses to Say YES to a Level Playing Field is a guide to help state and local advocates recruit business leaders, owners, and trade groups to help gain support for paid sick day's legislation.
Advocates' Answers to Businesses' Frequently Asked Questions provides an overview of the Healthy Families Act in a Question and Answer form and is aimed at dispelling any myths about the legislation.
A Comparison of Three Cities' Laws and Pending Federal Legislation compares paid sick days bills in San Francisco, Calif., Washington D.C., Milwaukee, Wis., and the federal Healthy Families Act.
