2022 Sick and Safe Leave Study

On behalf of the DC Department of Employment Services (DOES) Office of Wage-Hour, Bayne LLC is conducting an important audit of the District of Columbia’s Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act (ASSLA) and Earned Sick and Safe Leave Amendment Act (ESSLA). ASSLA requires employers in the District of Columbia to provide paid leave to employees for their own or family member illnesses or medical appointments and for absences associated with domestic violence or sexual abuse. As part of this audit, we are surveying employees and business owners.  

You will be asked a series of questions about your experience as an employee or business owner in 2022. Your responses are completely anonymous. Please answer the questions as accurately as possible with information about the job you held or business you owned in the District of Columbia during 2022 even if you are no longer employed there or the business has since closed.  If you held multiple jobs in 2022 or owned multiple companies in the District, please answer the questions in reference to the qualified job or business from which you earned the most money or revenue during the 2022 calendar year.

The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Thank you for participating.

Please Note: This survey is only intended for those persons who either held a job or owned a business in the District during calendar year 2022! All responses are confidential
