The District of Columbia Accrued Sick & Safe Leave Act went into effect in November 2008. At that time the D.C. Department of Employment Services (DOES) anticipated issuing a new D.C. labor law poster upon completion of final rulemaking. However, the rulemaking took longer than expected and so a summary of the law was added to the D.C. Minimum Wage Poster.
This summary is included on our current Washington D.C. poster.
Then in February 2010 D.C. Mayor Fenty’s Administration announced new regulations that updated the Act based on public comment on the draft regulations and an amendment made to the law after it passed.
A 30-day public comment period followed and now a Council approval process must be completed before the rules become final. Once the final rules are published, D.C. DOES may issue a new Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act poster but unless that happens the summary of the Act on the D.C. Minimum Wage Poster meets the poster requirement.
In the meantime the Poster Compliance Center Research Department will continue to watch for a possible new labor law poster.
