The ACLU-CT believes in a society where all people have equal opportunity to contribute to society and build successful and fulfilling lives. This includes ensuring that no person should have to choose between their health, or their family’s health, and their livelihood. Workers are not guaranteed even a single paid day off under federal law, and many other workers do not even receive protections for unpaid time off.

Comprehensive paid sick days are critical for the people of Connecticut. Senate Bill 7 and Senate Bill 12 are attempts to close the gaps in our state’s paid sick day laws. The ACLU-CT supports these bills, and urges this Committee to do the same.
