Late last night, the Connecticut House approved House Bill 6187, better known as the Paid Sick Leave bill. The bill has some important changes from its original drafting including some tweaks to the definition of who is an employer and how many days an employee is entitled to.  

The text of the new bill (as amended) can be found here.

I will have a recap of the bill’s new provisions and what it means for employers a bit later but suffice to say that employers in Connecticut need to play close attention to the bill’s progress in the Senate.
