CLAW SPECIAL EVENT
Tuesday, November 9, 2021
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.
