Mandatory Paid Sick Leave
Can a company force a sick employee to stay home?
The current bill would mandate one hour of paid time off for every 30 hours worked, to an annual maximum of five days.
State lawmakers are moving forward on a bill that would make it impossible for Philadelphia and other cities in Pennsylvania to enact paid mandatory sick leave.
Council voted 11-6 for the measure, but a two-thirds majority, or 12 votes, will be needed to override another expected veto from the Mayor.
