District of Columbia Sick Leave: What you need to know

The District of Columbia's Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act of 2008 (SSLA), as amended in 2014, entitles both full- and part-time employees to be paid sick and "safe" leave for use under certain circumstances. Amendments to the SSLA in 2014 eliminated the requirement that an employee work a certain number of hours in order to qualify for sick and safe leave under the Act (DC Code Sec. 32-131.02).
All employers with one or more employees and the District government are covered under the SSLA.
The amount of paid sick leave given to the employee depends on the size of the employer, as follows:
• Employers with 100 or more employees must provide 1 hour of paid leave for every 37 hours worked, not to exceed 7 days per calendar year.
• Employers with at least 25, but not more than 99, employees must provide 1 hour of paid leave for every 43 hours worked, not to exceed 5 days per calendar year.
• Employers with 24 or fewer employees must provide 1 hour of paid leave for every 87 hours worked, not to exceed 3 days per calendar year.
