Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation requires employers, including counties, that offer sick leave to allow their employees to use up to five days of the sick leave, which must be earned, to care for immediate family members.  Nothing requires employers to offer sick leave to begin with and the employee must comply with the terms of the county's sick leave policy.  Nothing in this bill shall be construed to create a new cause of against the county.  This law sunsets on July 1, 2020.
