The Parental Bereavement Act

Skip Sperry Blog Leave a Comment

House Bill 515 and Senate Bill 226 have been introduced for Congressional consideration.  These bills are basically a reintroduction of House Bill 6673 and Senate Bill 1358 from the 112th legislative session.

If passed, they would expand the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 to provide leave for the death of a son or daughter.  Intermittent or reduced schedule leave would not apply to leave taken under this proposed amendment, and employers could request certification to confirm the eligibility for leave.
