This is a great question. As of this date, very few states require mandatory sick pay. However, the rules vary by state. Below is an article that may help. For example, if your business is located in California, Washington State, Arizona or Vermont, then yes, you have to provide sick pay even if you have only 1 employee. Otherwise, most states don’t require mandatory sick pay to kick in until you have more staff. So, to answer your question, “it depends.”

p.s. To complicate matters further, many states are considering adding sick pay requirements. You may want to check the labor laws for your specific state.
