Parental leave for school involvement?

SB 713 is a proposal that parents would require the following:

"Every employer shall allow each person employed by him in connection with any business or service, which person is a parent, guardian, or person standing in loco parentis of a school-aged child, at least four hours leave annually so that the employee may attend or otherwise be involved at that child's school."

The bill also gives a cause of action for employees against whom employers retaliate for exercising their leave rights under the new statute.
