House Amendment 2 to Senate Bill 61
152nd General Assembly (Present)
This Amendment modifies language in SB 61 relating to requests for personal leave by providing that: (1) A building level administrator may approve personal leave requests, provided that the administrator does not ask the employee the reason for the request; (2) Only chief school officers or human resources administrators may ask the employee the reason for the request and deny a personal leave request; (3) Requests may only be denied if operational requirement cannot be met; and (4) Employees are not required to provide reasons for the request. This Amendment further removes Section 2 of the bill that provides employees with 5 days of leave after a pregnancy loss. It also removes Sections 3 and 4 from SB 61 that create conditional effective dates for Section 2 of the bill.
