To alleviate some of the economic strain on employees unable to work due to COVID-19, some state and local authorities have implemented new paid leave requirements. Other jurisdictions have modified existing leave laws or benefit programs to accommodate employees’ needs during the pandemic. This GRIST provides brief summaries of the new state and local COVID-19 paid leave benefits, as well as guidance addressing how existing paid leave benefits apply during the pandemic.

The latest update gives details on Philadelphia’s new COVID-19 paid leave ordinance, recent California and San Francisco guidance on pandemic-related leave, and expiration of Massachusetts’ COVID-19 paid leave mandate.
