  • Last month, mandatory paid leave legislation was introduced in Congress by Senator Kennedy (D-MA) and Congresswoman DeLauro (D-CT). The proposed federal Healthy Families Act (H.R. 2460) seeks to guarantee full-time employees at least 56 hours of paid sick leave each year and parttime employees a pro-rata amount of leave to care for themselves and their families' medical needs.
