John McLafferty Authors Article on Mass. Sick Leave Law for Law360

November 24, 2014
Day Pitney Author(s) John P. McLafferty

John McLafferty authored an article, "Mass. Sick Leave Law Will Pain Small Employers The Most," for Law360. He discusses the impact of the newly approved Massachusetts ballot question, which amends the state's Wage Act to require employers to provide sick leave. He notes that, "[u]nlike many other earned sick leave laws on the books or under consideration, the new Massachusetts law applies to employers of all sizes." He anticipates that compliance with the law will create an even greater burden for smaller employers, such as restaurants and smaller retailers. Arielle Sepulveda contributed to this article.
