Flexible Sick Days Bill Introduced!

The Georgia Flexible Sick Days Act, HB 432, was introduced on March 2nd by state Rep Katie Demsey (R-ROME) in the general assembly. We encourage you all to thank Katie for all of her work in getting this bill introduced. You can email her at

HB 432 would allow flexible use of the sick leave already offered at some workplaces. For example, if you are allowed 3 days of sick leave at your job you would be able to use this time off to care for a sick child, parent or spouse.

Your voices is needed to support this bill: Call your state Representative and tell them to support HB 432. Let them know that people shouldn’t have to choose between the family they love and the job they need. For the name and contact information of your state Representative call 9to5 (404.222.0037) or go online to:,.
