Are all of my employees eligible for paid time under this law?


No, you are not required to provide paid time to all of your employees - although nothing in this legislation prevents you from extending the benefit to all employees or being in any way more generous than the minimum standard set forth in this legislation.

The following groups of employees are exempted from this legislation:

  • Employees under 18 years of age.
  • Employees who work fewer than 20 weeks/year
  • Employees who work fewer than 18 hours/week (average)
  • If you have an industry specific question or aren’t sure whether an employee meets the qualifications, please e-mail us your question at
  • Kaycie Green
