Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation mandates that all counties implement a sick-time policy and provide at least 56 hours of paid sick leave per year to their employees.  Paid sick leave shall accrue at the rate of one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked.  The bill places several other requirements on these sick leave policies.  While ACCG has no issue with whatever sick leave the state may elect to provide its employees, we believe that counties are best apt to make their own personnel decisions.
