Could you be forced to provide employees with 10 days of paid leave every year? That’s exactly what New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for. In January, he announced his intention to introduce legislation requiring private employers with five or more employees to provide at least 10 paid personal days each year to full- and part-time workers. If the measure passes, more than 500,000 employees would gain the ability to take paid vacation, de Blasio says.
