Meanwhile, the bill’s provision to expand EPI eligibility for part-time workers has been watered down. However, an even larger problem is the widespread evasion of EPI by employers. Three fundamental revisions are needed to enhance administrative scrutiny and ensure coverage, including for permanent employees.
