Roughly half of employers have already implemented or are planning to implement an extended sick leave or PTO policy. Many others indicated they are still evaluating their strategy, with roughly one-third of employers saying they are waiting for federal or state legislation before making a decision.
Many employers, however, are specifying that additional sick leave or PTO can only be used for circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The additional time off is intended to be used by employees who are directly impacted by COVID-19, including those that have tested positive, may have been exposed or employees who need to care for their children as the result of school closings.
74% of employers have set their extended leave time at 14 days, with the rest considering longer periods of time depending on how the virus progresses and the needs of the business and their workers.
