I get four hours of sick leave every two weeks. This is not a ton of leave, but it helps when my two babies get sick and I get those calls from daycare when I have to pick them up. Four hours a pay period is not unreasonable; and I personally think that it adds to less turnover for companies who have a high turnover. Also, employee morale; which is the foundation to any sucessful company. Sick leave to me is an invitation from my job that says here you take care of you and your family when you need it!
