Arizona Releases Final Paid Sick Time Rules

Rules Address Recordkeeping, Posting, and More

Arizona has released final paid sick time rules. Highlights of the rules are presented below.

Recordkeeping
Under the rules, employers are generally required to keep the following records for each employee for 4 years:

  • The amount of earned paid sick time available to the employee;
  • The amount of earned paid sick time taken by the employee to date in the year;
  • The amount of pay the employee has received as earned paid sick time; and
  • The employee's earned paid sick time balance.

Posting
Employers with $500,000 or more in gross annual revenue generally must post the sick time poster in a conspicuous place in every establishment where employees are employed and where notices to employees are customarily placed.

Background
Under an amendment to the Arizona Minimum Wage Act, most Arizona employers are required to provide paid sick time to eligible employees. Employees of an employer with 15 or more employees accrue a minimum of 1 hour of earned paid sick time for every 30 hours worked, up to a maximum of 40 hours of earned paid sick time per year, unless the employer selects a higher limit.

Employees of an employer with fewer than 15 employees accrue a minimum of 1 hour of earned paid sick time for every 30 hours worked, but such employees may not accrue or use more than 24 hours of earned paid sick time per year, unless the employer selects a higher limit.

The law and final rules are currently in effect.
