Bong Revilla wants law for paid leave in case family members get sick
By Marie P Ruiz
Senatorial Candidate Bong Revilla will actively push for the Family and Medical Leave Act once re-elected as senator.
This would give a legitimate employee in government or private offices 15 days leave with compensation in a year to personally look after any member of his or her immediate family.
Revilla believes that this will help ease the burden of employees with family members suffering from illnesses.
He also said that compensation for employees on leave to look after their family members with serious illness will help them in their medical expenses.
