Businesses and paid sick days

The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) has launched a new website, “Businesses and Paid Sick Days,” which is a one-stop-shop for information on businesses and paid sick days.

You’ll find stories of employers, relevant resources, and news – and a list of over 100 supportive businesses nationwide! And it’s a great resource for business owners, workers, and others interested in learning why paid sick days are good for business. On the website you can find:

  • Quotes and stories from business owners who believe paid sick days offer more than a competitive advantage — it’s simply the right thing to do.
  • A list of news stories about business and paid sick days, like an article recognizing an unspoken “culture of illness” that puts personal productivity and the productivity of a company on the line.
  • Resources that make the case for businesses to support paid sick days, like sample time-off policies from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Browse the website, it’s a great place to find information and resources about paid sick days!
