Family Sick Leave Legislation Passes Georgia Senate, Heads to House

Have you ever needed to use one of your sick days to take care of a sick child, husband, or parents but your employer would not allow it?

The hope is to give employees the flexibility to care for family members when they may have used all of their vacation time or simply would rather not use it. Opponents of the measure say the bill goes a bit too far into the operations of a business and business owners should be the ones who determine how paid days off are used.
