Paid Leave Legislation Introduced

Employers should be aware that there are legislative efforts being made to mandate paid leave for their employees.  The Healthy Families Act, legislation designed to require employers to provide 7 paid sick days per year, was introduced today by sponsors Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn) and Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass).  According to the National Partnership for Women and Families, the new version of the bill will include domestic violence protections, allowing workers to use paid sick time to recover from or seek assistance related to domestic violence, stalking or sexual assault.
