HCA Announces Sample Policies for Earned Sick Time Compliance

New regulations on paid earned sick time went into effect on July 1st and many companies, if not entire industries, are working to follow the rules.

The Home Care Alliance has kept member home care agencies up to date with analysis on regulation changes and informational webinars complete with Q & A’s, but some agencies have asked the HCA for sample earned sick time policies.

Fortunately, Alliance staff and a task force of HR directors from member agencies drafted such a sample policy, which was reviewed by attorneys Allyson Kurker and Margaret Paget of Kurker Paget LLC. In addition, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) who was responsible for the regulation itself has posted a sample policy on their Earned Sick Time webpage and the Retailers Association of Massachusetts (RAM) also have publicly available policy templates that may be useful to home care agencies.
