  • Allow workers to use their paid sick days to recover from an illness, access preventive care, or provide care for a sick family member.
  • Allow workers who are victims of domestic violence, stalking, or sexual assault to use their paid sick days to escape, recover or seek assistance.
  • Help keep families, workplaces, and communities across the nation healthy.
