All Employers In Michigan Must Now Provide Paid Sick Leave

July 28, 2022

The Michigan Court of Claims has reinstated Michigan’s original (2018) voter-initiated version of the Earned Sick Time Act (ESTA).Therefore, the court held, the current version of the Paid Medical Leave Act (PMLA) is void. The PMLA exempted employers with less than 50 employees from paying paid sick leave; however, since the ESTA is the law in effect now, no such exemption exists.
