Best Buy Call In Sick Rules and Applicable Laws

Best Buy employees can call in sick based on the following:

The first two are federal-level acts that protect employees from being forced to go to work sick. The FMLA provides 12 weeks of unpaid sick leave per year to employees of companies with at least 50 staff members—Best Buy has a lot more than that.

When it comes to the EPSLA, this temporary act provides employees with mandatory ten days of paid leave for any Coronavirus-related health issue.

State Laws

Since federal law doesn’t provide any permanent paid sick leave law (yet), several states—15, to be exact—and D.C. decided to introduce state-level laws to provide better care for the employee. In some states without such a law, cities and counties have enacted local laws.

You should check out whether your Best Buy office falls under the jurisdiction of such a law before calling in sick. Check out the following table to find articles about individual state laws:
