WHAT IS PAID SICK LEAVE?

Paid sick leave is a new law in San Antonio that requires certain employees in San Antonio be given earned paid sick time off for use if an employee needs to be absent from work due to illness or injury, medical treatment or preventative care, domestic or sexual assault, and care of a family member. In general, it is compensated at normal rates of pay and affects employers that do not already provide comparable or more generous time off.

WHEN DOES PAID SICK LEAVE GO INTO EFFECT?

  • For employers with 6 or more employees, the Paid Sick Leave ordinance goes into effect on August 1, 2019 with limited enforcement of “retaliation” complaints only, and education/outreach on other violations until April 1, 2020.
  • For employees with five or fewer employees, the Paid Sick Leave ordinance begins on August 1, 2021.
