Law to Require Employers to Provide Paid Sick Leave Over H1N1

The H1N1 Virus has sparked new debate on paid sick leave and a Bill has been introduced, known as the Emergency Influenza Containment Act to require employers to pay sick employees who miss work.

This is the third bill to be introduced on the subject of paid sick days, and is designed to protect employees from becoming infected and reduce the amount of money in lost productivity due to more workers becoming sick.

I'd really like to hear your thoughts on this issue so please comment.
