In addition to (oftentimes conflicting) state and federal wage laws, employers in particular counties – including such notables as Miami-Dade County (FL), San Francisco County (CA – where the minimum wage of $9.79 is almost $2/hour higher than the state minimum wage) and New York City – must also stay abreast of wage legislation at the county level.  On March 25, New York City Council Member Gale Brewer, along with more than 30 co-sponsors, reintroduced the Earned Paid Sick Leave Act for debate and consideration. In short, the Act would require private employers in the City to provide employees a minimum number of paid sick days each year.  Washington DC and San Francisco already have such laws in place.  Further detail and discussion is available here.
