Launched in 2015, EnforcingSickDays.org provides state and local governments with tools and resources to effectively implement earned sick days laws.
EnforcingSickDays.org is an initiative of the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), a nonprofit anti-poverty organization that develops and advocates for public policies that improve the lives of low-income people. CLASP works with government agencies and advocacy organizations to realize our vision of a world where poverty is rare.
EnforcingSickDays.org is an extension of CLASP’s peer-to-peer advising work with earned sick days enforcement agencies. In 2014 and 2015, CLASP organized a series of conference calls in which enforcement agencies across the country discussed shared challenges and best practices in implementing earned sick days laws. This was followed by a live convening co-hosted by CLASP and the City of New York in October 2015. In addition to enforcement agencies, the convening welcomed advocates from five states and the District of Columbia.
Building on this peer learning model, EnforcingSickDays.org provides a library of resources for effectively implementing earned sick days.
