Many Utah companies offer sick leave, though it is not required by the state. However, many employers that do offer sick leave benefits only allow employees to use the time for themselves, and not for taking care of a sick immediate family member, such as a child, spouse or parent. Without paid sick leave to care for others, employees can be forced to leave a good job to provide care for others, causing employers to lose trained, qualified workers.
