Two important employment-related bills have been introduced in the House of Representatives of Arizona’s legislature. The first, HB2116, would make bereavement leave for the death of a child mandatory for any employers that are already subject to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The second, HB2335, is part of a larger bill that also deals with workplace safety and union participation matters that would add gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation and marital status as protected classes for which employees cannot be discriminated against by employers having at least 15 employees.
