dc.description.abstract
This paper evaluates the effects of employer sick pay mandates on sick pay coverage, utilization, and labor costs in the U.S. Using the National Compensation Survey, we estimate difference-in-differences models in an event study design. Sick pay coverage increases significantly by 18 percentage points from a baseline level of 66 percent in the first two years, but then plateaus over the next four years. Newly covered employees take two additional sick days per year, increasing labor costs by 21 cents per hour worked for marginal firms. However, we find little evidence that mandated sick pay crowds-out other non-mandated paid leave benefits. Finally, we develop a model of optimal sick pay provision along with a welfare analysis. Mandating sick pay likely increases welfare.
