Winston-Salem partner Robin Shea recently spoke to SHRM Online about complying with new paid sick leave laws during the winter flu season. 

Shea cautioned that employers that under certain circumstances, provisions of the Family Medical Leave Act could apply: "The flu could be a serious health condition within the meaning of the FMLA if it lasts more than three calendar days—not unusual with the flu—and if an eligible employee visited a health care provider once and received a shot or prescription...Or the flu could be a serious health condition if the employee visited a health care provider twice within a 30-day period or had to spend the night in a hospital."
