Judith Warner wrote this interesting editorial in today’s New York Times on how the Swine Flu may force changes in sick leave policies.  Warner concludes by advocating for the Healthy Families Act, which would require employers who employ 15 or more employees to provide up to 7 paid sick days per year.  This flu outbreak may give the Healthy Families Act the push it needs to become law, so watch for more updates
