The Washington Post reports today that the D.C. Council has initially passed legislation requiring employers to grant paid sick leave to employees, joining San Francisco as the only municipalities to do so.  The Council must vote again on the measure next month in order for it to become effective. 

 The bill would grant employees of companies with more than 100 employees seven days of paid sick leave, those with companies of 25-99 employees would get five days, and those with less than 24 would get three days.  Part-time workers could earn up to half the days of full-time workers.  The original, unamended text of the bill can be found here.  The bill was amended to reduce the burden on smaller businesses.
