News: Democrats and Trump Administration to offer PTO to COVID-19 affected employees
With a large number of people getting affected by the disease, the Trump administration has mandated sick paid leave to the private industry workers who have been affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), or those who have been quarantined. This comes in affected after the data analyzed by the health care officials shows that a significant number of COVID-19 affected people are privately employed and lack paid time off.
Democrats in the House and Senate introduced legislation that would require all U.S. employers to grant workers paid sick days in light of the coronavirus. "Workers want to do the right thing for themselves, their families, and their communities—so especially in the middle of public health crises like this, staying home sick shouldn't have to mean losing a paycheck or a job," Murray said.
