Arizona Working Healthy Act
ARIZONA FAMILY LEAVE ACT
The purpose of the Arizona Family Leave Act (AFLA) is to allow employees leave from work for certain medical reasons, for birth or placement of a child, and for the care of certain family members (including registered domestic partners) who have a serious health condition.
All employers who employ 50 or more employees for at least 20 workweeks annually within 75 miles of the employee’s worksite must provide FLA leave to their employees (“qualified employer”).
The workweeks can be in the current or preceding calendar year. Leave provided by employers under AFLA is not required to be paid.
AFLA provides up to twelve weeks of protected leave in a 12-month period for eligible employees.
ARIZONA FAIR WORKWEEK ACT
On average, Arizonans work either too few hours or far too many. Ever-changing schedules force employees to be available 24/7 without a guaranteed steady income, wreaking havoc on their family life and economic security.
A national survey of early career adults has confirmed what millions of workers already knew: workers across the labor market – but particularly workers in part-time, hourly-waged jobs – are at high risk of unpredictable, last-minute, fluctuating work hours over which they have no control.
The purpose of the Arizona Fair Workweek Act is to establish a predictable, flexible, and reliable workweek that Arizonans can count on, with enough hours for families to make ends meet.
