How do I set up to accure and track under the new state of Washington Paid Sick Leave law.

Beginning Jan 1, 2018 we will be required to provide 1 hour of sick leave for every 40 hours worked, and to provide accruals, used, and balance on paystubs.  I've tried to work though the program but not sure of my success.
