Whether employers in Denver County will be required to provide paid sick leave will be decided by voters in the November election. The ordinance would require employers to allow full-time employees to accrue up to 72 hours paid sick time per year (40 hours for employers with fewer than 10 employees). Accrual would be prorated for part-time employees. Workers would begin earning sick leave upon hire and be eligible to use leave after 90 days. Sick leave, up to the employee’s annual maximum, would carry over from year to year. Employers who have paid-time-off policies providing leave sufficient to satisfy the ordinance will not have to provide more leave.
