In what could be the start of a national trend, Connecticut lawmakers OK’d a new law that requires employers with 50 or more workers in Connecticut to provide up to 40 hours of paid sick leave to their “service workers.” This includes people who work in service capacities in restaurants, hospitals, schools and other institutions, but excludes exempt employees. Covered workers (those completing 680 hours on the job) must receive at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 40 hours worked.

The law takes effect Jan. 1, 2012.
