DC Paid Sick Leave Rights

Understanding Your D.C. Paid Sick Leave Rights

You Maybe Entitled to Paid Sick Leave.

Paid sick leave is a public health issue, especially during the current Coronavirus pandemic. It allows workers to stay at home if they are ill without having to miss a paycheck. That means that they are better able to recover and are less likely to pass on contagious illnesses to coworkers, customers, and fellow commuters.
