This chart summarizes state paid sick leave laws and notes which states do not have such laws. It does not discuss municipal ordinances but does indicate local governments that do have such laws where there is no statewide law. This chart is intended for private employers.
Note also that while no federal statute requires that employers provide paid sick leave for employees, Executive Order 13706 mandates that, effective January 1, 2017, covered federal contractors give employees up to seven days of paid sick leave each year. See 80 FR 54697. It remains to be seen if the Trump Administration will rescind this executive order.
The chart covers the following:
The following states have no applicable state law: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming
