Reporter, HuffPost10/27/2021 03:11pm EDTHouse cleaners and nannies in San Francisco already have the right to paid sick leave — but now officials want to make it easier for them to actually get that paid time off.Supervisor Hilary Ronen introducedon Tuesday that would allow domestic workers who work for private employers to accrue sick leave benefits, even if they work in chunks of a few hours at a time for several different employers.

outside San Francisco City Hall.“They deserve access to paid time off so they don’t have to lose wages to take care of their loved ones or themselves.” Read more: HuffPostWomen »
