Over the strong objections of various restaurant and small business associations, Pittsburgh city council adopted a requirement that employers with 15 or more workers offer 5 paid sick days. Companies with fewer than 15 employees must offer 3 unpaid sick days after one year. Some warn the city is exceeding its authority and will be sued in court over the mandate.
