Because TimeForge tracks Time and Attendance (employee time cards, sick days, vacation time, and PTO requests), we try to keep current on the many issues surrounding employee work scheduling and payroll in the restaurant and retail industries.
The debate on mandatory paid sick days resurfaced in Connecticut at the end of March as legislators debated House Bill 6187 which would mandate six paid sick days per year to businesses with 50 or more employees. Proponents of the bill are trying to drum up support for this bill as a health policy issue because sick food service and hospitality can spread illness to the public. Sick employees can make the public sick, creating a public health concern.
The Connecticut Restaurant Association, as well as other organizations, is tracking the issue. Whatever the eventual outcome of the bill, you can count on TimeForge to minimize the burden of accurately tracking paid sick days and other requests for time off.
