Committee To Hear Testimony On Paid Sick Leave

Print More

A Vermont House committee is set to take testimony on a proposal to require businesses to offer paid sick leave to their workers.

The bill would allow Vermont workers to earn the equivalent of seven, eight-hour days of sick leave a year.

Supporters say paid sick leave is important, because it would allow more workers to stay home when they’re sick, and not spread illnesses to their co-workers.

The House General Housing and Military Affairs committee is taking testimony from workers, child care providers and public health professionals on the legislation.
