AGO and Council to hold Earned Sick Time Info Session
The Providers' Council and the Attorney General's Office invite you to an information session to educate employers and employees about the Earned Sick Time Law, which went into effect July 1, 2015. This session will provide guidance on implementation, explain employers' and employees' rights and responsibilities and provide opportunities to get specific questions answered. The Earned Sick Time Law was approved by the voters and entitles employees in Massachusetts to earn and use up to 40 hours of sick time under certain conditions. The Attorney General's Office enforces this law and also wrote and published final regulations to clarify practices and policies in its administration. More information, including the final regulations and sample documents, may be found on the Attorney General's Earned Sick Time webpage: www.mass.gov/ago/earnedsicktime
More than 40 percent of the 145,000 employees in the human services sector are part-time employees, and they may work at more than one human services agency. How does this new law affect you as a human services agency and your employees? What specific things do you need to know to ensure your organization is in compliance with the new law?
If you have questions about the earned sick time law and how it may affect your organization, join the Council and the Attorney General's Office for an informational session on July 31 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Pre-registration is required for this limited seating event.

Shane Blundell, Assistant Attorney General
Mike Firestone, Assistant Attorney General
