Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act of 2008 (Hardship Waiver)
The Department of Employment Services intends to amend Chapter 32, entitled "Accrued Sick and Safe Leave," of Title 7 (Employment Benefits) of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR). The rulemaking is necessary to implement Section 15 of the Act to establish the criteria for the granting of a hardship exemption from the requirements of the Act. The purpose of the Act is to require employers in the District of Columbia to provide leave for illness and absences associated with domestic violence and sexual abuse.
All persons desiring to comment on the subject matter of this proposed rulemaking should file comments in writing to Tonya Sapp, General Counsel, D.C Department of Employment Services, 4058 Minnesota Avenue, N.E, Suite 5800, Washington, D.C. 20019.
