Employees must start accruing paid sick leave on July 1, 2022. For every thirty (30) hours an employee works, the employee must accrue one (1) hour of sick leave. Employers may not offset this requirement with leave employees already earned or used since January 1, 2022. If an employer’s policy or a collective bargaining agreement provides that employees accrue more than one hour per every 30 worked, then use that amount. Employers who want to frontload to comply with the HWA for the rest of 2022 must frontload the full 64 hours, even though there will only be 6 months in the cycle for employers who choose to follow the calendar year.
