Flu sick leave

Posted:

If you've got the flu but don't get paid for taking time off - what do you do: stay home, or go to work and try not to infect your co-workers?

Congress is concerned too many people are being forced to work..

Nearly half the workers in this country have no paid sick leave, but there's a new effort to give more workers paid sick leave.

Lawmakers are introducing emergency legislation that would require employers to pay sick workers for up to seven days.

The House already has a bill. The senate's is being written. If it passes, guaranteed paid sick leave could be a reality in just two weeks after it's approved.
