Paid Sick & Safe Days

No one should have to choose between their health, safety, and economic security. Our work seeks to expand paid sick and safe days policies at both the local and national levels, ensuring that all workers have the support they need to care for themselves and their loved ones during times of illness or crisis.

Why Paid Sick and Safe Days Matter:

Health and Well-being: Paid sick and safe days allow workers to take time off when they are ill or need to address safety concerns without sacrificing their pay. This promotes individual health and well-being, as well as the health of the entire community by reducing the spread of illness in the workplace.

Safety and Security: Everyone deserves to feel safe at work and in their personal lives. Paid safe days provide crucial support for individuals experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, allowing them to seek help and take necessary steps to protect themselves and their families without fear of losing their job or income.

Economic Stability: Without paid sick and safe days, many workers are forced to choose between their health and their paycheck, putting their economic stability at risk. Paid leave policies ensure that workers can take the time they need to recover from illness or address safety concerns without facing financial hardship.

Our Aim

We’re dedicated to advocating for comprehensive paid sick and safe days policies that benefit all workers, regardless of industry or employment status. We do this by:

Educating and Raising Awareness: We strive to inform the public about the importance of paid sick and safe days and their positive impact on individuals, families, and communities.

Advocating for Policy Change: We work with lawmakers, policymakers, and community leaders to promote the adoption of inclusive paid sick and safe days policies at the local and national levels.

Supporting Workers’ Rights: We stand with workers in their fight for fair and equitable treatment in the workplace, including the right to paid time off for illness or safety concerns.
