MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont House is slated this week to take up legislation that would require employers to give workers paid time off.

The bill, House Bill 187, would require that employees be given up to three paid days off a year starting in January and up to five days beginning in 2018.

It would apply to employees who are sick, those who need to care for a sick family member and those who need to be absent for safety reasons, for instance in a domestic violence situation.

Employees would be eligible for the benefit after having worked 1,400 hours or a year - whichever comes first.
