Paid Family Leave for State Employees (H. 3560)

This bill would provide state employees with 12 weeks of paid family leave for the birth, adoption or foster care of a child. Paid family leave is crucial to supporting working families’ economic security and promoting gender equity in workplaces. No one should have to risk their job or face financial loss when they need to welcome a new child.

WREN supports efforts to bring gender equity to the workplace and caregiving roles.  Paid leave would provide people of all genders with the ability to work and care for their families.  This policy is essential to a healthy and functioning state, no parent should have to choose between bonding with their child and financially providing for their family.
