A briefing paper from the Institute for Women's Policy ResearchRead the full report
An analysis by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research reveals that about 35% of private sector employees in San Jose lack even a single paid sick day.
Access to paid sick days promotes healthy work environments by reducing the spread of illness, increasing productivity and supporting work and family balance. This briefing paper presents estimates of access to paid sick days in San Jose by sex, race and ethnicity, industry, occupation, earnings, and family status through analysis of government data sources, including the 2011–2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the 2009–2011 American Community Survey (ACS).
