A proposal that would require most Ohio companies to give employees at least seven paid sick days each year is headed to the state Legislature under the Healthy Families Act.
Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner announced in January that supporters of the proposal had enough petition signatures to put the issue before lawmakers.

The proposal’s supporters say more than 2.2 million Ohioans (some 42% of the state’s private work force) have no paid sick leave.
