Andersen’s bill will clear up confusion as to whether victims of miscarriages and still births are eligible for such bereavement leave – something which is not clear under current law.
Women in such positions will be eligible for up to three days leave.
I’m not sure what to be more shocked about – how this isn’t already covered by bereavement law, or how the bill only gives three days of leave.
I am a man, so take my opinion with a grain of salt but it seems to me that the trauma that would come with the loss of a baby would inhibit the woman in question for more then three days. It just seems like an awfully short time to me.
Regardless, this bill is a good start and fixes a wrong in the law, and that is always good to see.
Good on Ginny.
