After the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) expired, along with its mandate for employers to provide paid sick leave, state and local lawmakers stepped in to fill the gap. Their efforts have created a hodgepodge of temporary mandates requiring employers to pay workers who are sick, need to isolate or quarantine, or are seeking COVID-19 testing or vaccination.

Employers should remember that a number of states and localities also have permanent paid-sick-leave mandates. This interactive chart maps the various state and local paid-sick-leave laws that extend beyond the pandemic and are currently in effect, upcoming or on hold due to legal challenges. The chart does not contain COVID-19 paid-leave laws that are temporarily in place in many states and localities.
