Panel Discussion on the Future of Universal Family and Medical Leave

 

The United States is the only industrialized nation in the world without a minimum standard of paid family or medical leave, even though universal paid leave enjoys strong public support. But Congress is currently considering legislation to create a national paid family leave policy in the United States as part of Biden’s Build Back Better bill.  What is at stake for working families and employers?  What are the larger policy implications of paid family leave for economic recovery, inequality, and the welfare of families?  Come hear an expert panel talk about what universal paid family leave will mean for American working families.

 

FACILITATOR:

CATHERINE ALBISTON, Jackson H. Ralston Professor of Law and Professor of Sociology, UC Berkeley

PANELISTS:

VASU REDDY, Senior Policy Counsel for Economic Justice at the National Partnership for Women and Families

SHARON TERMAN, Director of the Work and Family Program and Senior Staff Attorney at Legal Aid at Work
