3 A n establishment was considered as having a p olicy if it met either o f the follow ing conditions: (1) Operated late shifts at the time
o f the survey, or (2 ) had formal provisions covering late shifts. An establishment was considered as having formal provisions i f it (1 ) had
operated late shifts during the 12 months before the survey, or (2 ) had provisions in written form to operate late shifts.

4 H ie temporary disability laws in California and Rhode Island do not require employer contributions.
5 An establishment is considered as having a formal plan if it established at least the minimum number o f days sick leave available
