The Making Paid Sick Days Work: Sharing Strategies convening brings together paid sick days enforcement agencies, advocates, and other partners from around the country to discuss strategies to improve implementation and enforcement of paid sick days laws and other labor standards. This year’s convening is co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office. 

For many working families, access to paid sick days can be a crucial aspect of both economic security and good health. We also know that passing good laws is not always enough to realize those benefits — it is also essential that paid sick days policies are effectively implemented and rigorously enforced. Since the passage of the first paid sick days ordinance over a decade ago in San Francisco, we are heartened at the progress other jurisdictions have made in getting paid sick days on the books. With Duluth, Minnesota passing their law on May 29, we now have 44 laws that are making an impact on the lives of more than 15 million workers. We are also seeing the growth of other municipal labor standards, including fair and predictable schedules. This year’s convening will have sessions dedicated to advocacy, legislative, and enforcement issues related to volatile work schedules.

The convening is free for all attendees. 

The conference hotel for convening attendees is at the historic Omni Parker House hotel, conveniently located across from the conference space.
