Paid sick leave resources

The City of Philadelphia has enacted the “Promoting Healthy Families and Workplaces” law, which provides that certain employees are entitled to paid and unpaid leave, all under certain terms and conditions. The law, regulations, poster, one-pagers, and complaint form are available for download.

  • Paid sick leave posters for employers: Employers are now required by law to notify their employees that they are entitled to sick time. The City of Philadelphia has created the paid sick leave poster. The poster is available for download in multiple languages, and it is required that employers post this notice that employees are entitled to sick time. Further information should also be made available in any handbooks distributed to employees.
  • One-pagers from the Office of Immigrant Affairs: One-pagers aimed at informing immigrant workers in Philadelphia of their rights in the workplace are also available for download. They were created by the Office of Immigrant Affairs (OIA) in partnership with local non-profits. The materials available on the one-pager are provided for general informational purposes only, do not constitute legal advice, and are not guaranteed to be up to date.
