March 2014, Eileen Appelbaum, Ruth Milkman, Luke Elliott, and Teresa Kroeger

The authors focus on the experience of Connecticut employers with the state’s paid sick leave law, yielding valuable insight on the effect of such laws on business.

Using data drawn from a survey of Connecticut employers and on-site interviews, the authors analyzed the impact of the state's pathbreaking new law. Though lobbyists and some employers in the state expressed concern that the law would negatively affect employers, the report demonstrates that these fears were unfounded. In fact, in several of the sectors most directly affected by the legislation – such as hospitality and health services – employment actually rose.
