Under pressure from the White House and business groups, House Democrats agreed to further water down paid sick and family leave provisions in the coronavirus emergency bill currently awaiting a Senate vote.
Democrats had already vastly scaled back their proposals for paid sick leave and paid family leave. Instead of covering all workers, millions were left out of the version of the bill passed over the weekend. Still, the original compromise bill included 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave for workers with COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, symptoms of COVID-19 or those caring for others who are sick.

Coronavirus: Plan to get Americans longer paid sick leave blocked - here's why

Democrats went big with their proposal to include 12 weeks of paid sick leave for those affected by coronavirus, only to have those hopes dashed by old fashioned Washington deal-making.

The initial version of a second emergency virus bill awaiting a Senate vote called for 12 full weeks of paid leave for employees with COVID-19, workers with symptoms or ones caring for loved ones who have the novel virus. That proposal, however, rattled Republicans and business groups, who worried it would put a heavy burden on business and cost too much.

The federal Family and Medical Leave Act, contrary to popular notions, does not require paid leave. Rather, it allows for it under "certain medical situations for either the employee or a member of the employee's immediate family," according to the Labor Department.
