Paid Sick Days Back on Track in Pittsburgh

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the Pittsburgh Paid Sick Days Act (“PSDA”) in a decision today, overturning two lower court decisions that found the Act was invalid as an impermissible business regulation.

Under the PSDA, employers with 15+ employees must provide paid sick leave, up to 40 hours per year, at a rate of 1 hour of leave for every 35 hours worked.  Employers with less than 15 employees must also provide paid sick leave at the same accrual rate, up to 24 hours per year.   

The effective date of the PSDA is unknown at this time, but we will continue to update this post as more information becomes available.
