A bill introduced in Congress establishes federal guidelines for paid sick leave. No national requirements exist; dozens of cities and states have enacted their own rules. Our guest from the Economic Policy Institute explains what research shows, including who gets paid time off when they’re sick and how that changes workers’ decisions.

Do you earn paid sick leave where you work? Are you a business owner who decides whether to provide that to employees? Tell us about the choices you have.
