Infographic: Paid Sick Leave Laws Around the U.S.

Prior to 2014, there were only 4 paid sick leave laws in effect nationwide. That number has grown to more than 30 laws, covering several states, cities, and counties.  The infographic below provides a broader picture of which states, cities, and counties offer paid sick leave laws.

UPDATE: The infographic below reflects the change to San Antonio, Texas. On November 22, 2019, a Bexar County Judge issued an injunction blocking the implementation of the San Antonio Earned Paid Sick Leave Ordinance. This Ordinance was scheduled to take effect December 1, 2019, and would have required all private employers to provide eligible employees with paid sick and safe leave benefits.
