New Vermont legislation that requires employers to provide paid sick leave will have the greatest impact on smaller employers that don’t currently offer a comparable benefit and employers doing business in multiple states.

By 2018 the minimum required leave will jump to at least 40 hours (or five days) of earned sick time in a 12-month period.
