Springfield Regional Chamber to Host Session on Sick-leave Law
SPRINGFIELD — Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Jones will lead a discussion on the recently enacted earned-sick-time legislation at an information session presented by the office of Attorney General Maura Healey in conjunction with the Springfield Regional Chamber on Tuesday, Sept. 29 from 8:15 to 10 a.m. in the TD Bank Conference Center, 1441 St., Springfield.
On the November ballot, voters approved legislation that entitles employees to earn and use paid sick time. Massachusetts is the third state in the country to guarantee paid sick days for workers.
The information session will include a review of the law, the rights and responsibilities of both employers and employees, and the details of implementing the regulations written by the Attorney General’s office.
Jones is the deputy chief and special counsel for fair labor policy in the Fair Labor Division (FLD) of the Office of the Attorney General. She manages FLD policy and outreach work, directs the division’s public-construction-bidding unit and child-labor-enforcement program, and assists in overseeing wage-and-hour enforcement and litigation.
