Requires a 40-hour per week worker receive 4 weeks vacation first effective year; 5 weeks second year; 6 weeks thereafter. Applies to workers employed by same employer 2 years and meeting 5 of 6 following conditions: voted in general election; highschool graduate or equivalent; took 80 or less hours sick leave; no driving under the influence or drug convictions after 1990 or within 10 prior years; did not smoke on job; commuted to work as specified. Public employers not required to participate without agreement. Summary of estimate of Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Provisions of measure requiring 6 weeks vacation could increase employee compensation expenses of most businesses, resulting in an unknown reduction in profits and lower taxable income. As a result, state tax revenue will likely be reduced in an unknown but probably significant amount. The measure could increase state and local government procurement costs for goods and services. The state will incur unknown administrative and enforcement costs.
