Congressman George Miller has introduced the H1N1 flu emergency sick leave bill.
The legislation would grant five days of sick leave a year if an employer directs a sick worker to stay home or go home.
It would apply to companies with 15 or more employees that do not already provide that amount of sick leave. Part-time workers would also be eligible on a prorated basis. The emergency law would sunset after 2 years. But businesses would have to foot the bill.
Do you think Congress should pass a bill mandating that employers grant their workers emergency sick leave?
