Quote from: Final Text Senate Text
AN ACT
To protect the health of Atlasian workers and the wider community
Be it enacted in both houses of Congress
Quote
Section 1: Title
1. This legislation may be cited as the "Medical Leave and Compensation Act of 2021"
Section 2: Amendment to the Coronavirus Containment and Emergency Response Act
1. Section 5b of the legislation is amended as follows-
"(b.) All employers must allow their workers to accrue seven at least ten annual days of paid sick leave, with an additional fourteen days available immediately in the event of public health emergencies.
2. A new clause shall be added to section 5 of the legislation-
"All employed people in Atlasia who are self-isolating to avoid spreading Covid-19, where required by law, shall be paid by the government their full wage for the entirety of their period of their required isolation."
a) This payment shall also apply if an individual misses at least one full day of work while self-isolating while waiting for the results of a Covid-19 test, even if they are not legally required to self-isolate.
b) This payment shall be capped at $45 an hour.
3. All persons who receive a notification from the DefeatCoronavirus app asking them to self-isolate, are otherwise notified by government contact tracers, or otherwise receive a positive Covid-19 test, shall be required to self-isolate for the following periods-
a) Five days, if they take a Covid-19 test five days or later into their self-isolation and that test result comes back negative.
b) Otherwise, fourteen days, or-if this is later than fourteen days-until they recover from Covid-19.
c) The maximum penalty per offense shall be a fine of $1,500 for a single period of required self isolation that is not followed, with the maximum penalty for repeat offenders (three or more breaches) being a fine of $15,000.
Section 3; Miscarriage Bereavement Leave
1. All employed people in Atlasia shall be entitled to up to three days of bereavement leave in the following circumstances-
a) On the unplanned end of their pregnancy through a miscarriage or still-birth, where this is not the result of use of abortion services.
b) On the unplanned end of another person's pregnancy through a miscarriage or still-birth, where this is not the result of the use of abortion services, in these circumstances-
i) Where they are the person's spouse or partner.
ii) Where they would have been the biological parent of a child born as a result of the pregnancy.
iii) Where they had officially undertaken to be the primary carer of a child born as a result of the pregnancy.
iv) Where they are the spouse or partner of a person who had officially undertaken to be the primary carer of a child born as a result of the pregnancy.
Section 4; Compensation for Live Organ Donors
1. "Qualifying donor" is a person who satisfies these conditions-
a) they will forgo earnings as a result of taking unpaid leave or otherwise ceasing employment to allow for their recuperation from the surgery
b) both the donor surgery and the surgery to implant the organ will be carried out in Atlasia
c) the organ will be collected, implanted, and dealt with lawfully
2. A qualifying donor is entitled to receive up to twelve weeks worth of compensation from the federal government for recovering from surgery after donating an organ.
a) The compensation may be ceased when the qualifying donor either returns to employment or is medically certified to be fit to return to their employment, even if this is earlier than twelve weeks after the surgery.
3. Compensation may be given before the surgery where the qualifying donor undertakes activities in preparation for the surgery if-
a) they would not reasonably be able to undertake these activities without taking leave from their employment for that period, and
b) these activities are medically necessary for the surgery to be successfully carried out.
4. All compensation legislated for in this section shall be set at the level of the qualifying donor's full wage for the period.
a) The compensation shall be capped at $45 an hour.
Section 5; Implementation
1. All provisions of this legislation shall come into effect immediately upon its passage into law.
2. No provision of this legislation shall expire at any declared end of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This bill is of utmost importance to the workers of Atlasia.  There's no reason that a medical episode should threaten employment for anyone.  If we are to remain a healthy nation -- a nation of middle class working heroes -- then we must enshrine into law these protections of our work force. Pass this bill!

Can someone explain the logic of Section 2.3 to me? Five and fourteen days don't exactly line up with each other.

It's related to the contact-tracing app we have utilized.
