Please contact your Senator and urge them to vote YES to House Bill 2137 Paid Sick Leave during their upcoming meeting.
HB2137 would require employers to provide certain employees paid sick leave, particularly essential workers. Additionally, the bill grants employees the ability to take off work for mental and physical health or to care for a family member. Legislation such as this will add new protections for essential workers that have been working tirelessly during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Virginia must ensure that it is protecting its essential workers that have kept the Commonwealth operating during these challenging times, which is why we support this crucial legislation.
