Paid Leave

Taking time away from work to care for a new or adopted child or recover from a serious health condition should not lead to financial ruin. Paid family and medical leave helps people weather these normal life events by providing essential economic support.

People who have access to paid leave are healthier, more economically secure and less likely to need public assistance resources. Paid leave also benefits employers by helping workers address serious health issues and then return ready and able to work.
