We are back to tackle some myths about paid sick days and small business.

MYTH: All small business owners oppose paid sick days.

FACT: Many small business owners, even those who don’t currently offer paid sick days, support having a standard. In order to stay competitive, small business owners need a standard to encourage a level playing field for them and their competitors versus being the only ones offering it and accounting for it in their expenses.

MYTH: Paid sick days are different than paid time off.

FACT: Employers that already offer paid time off that can be used when sick and without scheduling it beforehand (for example- if someone calls in sick on the day) are already meeting the paid sick day standard!


Virginians for Paid Sick Days is a coalition of organizations fighting to establish a paid sick day standard that keeps Virginians healthy and keeps our economy running.
