Welcome!

The Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces is made up of a group of organizations supporting the need for earned sick time in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. After years of work, Philadelphia's earned sick days bill passed on February 12, 2015, and was signed into law the same day.

Earned Sick Days Information

Workers across the city can now earn sick days to care for themselves and their family members. You can learn more about the law here, or read our worker FAQs. Other information about the legislation, including translated materials, are available on our Philadelphia Sick Days FAQs page.

Questions and Filing Complaints

If you have a question about the law, please feel free to contact us at earnedsickdays@gmail.com or contact the city directly at paidsickleave@phila.gov. You can also call the Community Legal Services Sick Days Help Line at (267) 281-4230 if your job doesn’t offer sick days or if you have questions. Please keep in mind that any information provided by the Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces is correct to the best of our knowledge, but it is not exhaustive and should not be taken as legal advice.
