Sick leave is time off from work that workers can use during periods of temporary illness to stay home and address their health and safety needs without losing pay. Some workplaces offer paid sick time as a matter of workplace policy, and in few jurisdictions it is codified into law.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Employees are less productive and more likely to have accidents when working under duress.
For New Orleans
New Orleans is more socially and economically healthy when its citizens are healthy. Serious accidents can be avoided if people are not working under duress.
