The Massachusetts Attorney General has issued proposed regulations (“regulations”) regarding the new Sick Leave Law. The regulations do not yet have the force of law. There will be a notice and comment period that lasts until June 10, 2015, and public hearings will be held throughout the Commonwealth.
While (in our view), the regulations are for the most part logical, helpful, and clear, there are some sections that we feel need re-tooling, and about which we plan to testify at the Boston hearing on May 18. The Attorney General has made it clear that her office welcomes and appreciates input from all stakeholders, and has made changes to proposed regulations based on comments from our attorneys in the past. We therefore encourage our readers to contact us if there are particular topics that you feel we should cover in our testimony.
