California governor vetoes unpaid sick leave bill

Measure would have extended coverage to care for extended family, domestic partners

California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill Sunday that would have expanded the state’s unpaid family leave laws.

Senate Bill 406 would have added stipulations to the California Family Rights Act allowing workers to take up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave to care for sick domestic partners, grandparents, grandchildren, siblings and parents-in-law. The current law, similar to federal law, allows workers to take that leave to care for sick children, spouses and parents.
