Further Coronavirus Supplemental Appropriations -- Emergency Paid Leave


Murray, D-Wash., amendment no. 1559 to the bill that would require all employers to provide additional paid leave to employees in the event of a public health emergency. Specifically, it would require employers to provide 14 days of emergency paid sick leave, and 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave at a rate of at least two-thirds an employee's regular rate of pay or minimum wage. It would separately require employers to allow employees to accrue at least 1 hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked, up to 56 hours of sick time annually. It would require the Treasury Department to reimburse employers for the full costs for providing such benefits through December 2021, after employers certify leave provided through the Labor Department. Under the provisions of the amendment, the other employer-provided leave provisions in the bill would have no force or effect.
